The purpose of this study was to investigate the effect of walking programme on selected physiological variables among middle aged women. To fulfill these aim thirty subjects were selected from virudhunagar district. The selected subjects were aged between 45 to 55 years. The subjects were given only walking exercise for six weeks. The selection of the subject was made at random. For the present study the following dependent variables were selected as physiological variables such as blood pressure and body fat.
