Effect of swimming training on body mass index of beginner swimmers
Author(s): Dr. Yogesh S Nirmal
Background: Every training program has its own effects on the physiological functioning; the present study would serve in to know about these effects in depth. Keep in mind researcher investigated the effect of swimming Training on Body Mass Index of beginner swimmers. Materials and Methods: For achieving the purpose of this study total 50 male beginner swimmers were selected as subject from H.V.P.Mandal’s Amravati, Maharashtra. Their age was ranging from 13 to 15 years, Body Mass Index is an indicator of obesity. The index is expressed as the ratio of weight to height squared.Body Mass Index was calculated by using the Total body weight was recorded in Kilogram by using standard weighing machine. Height was recorded in centimeters and then converted in meters by using Stadiometer.All the selected subjects were divided in to two groups. Only experimental group underwent swimming Training for 48 weeks. Pre Mid and Post tests were applied for both the groups to find out the significant effect of swimming training on Body Mass Index Time. Result: The data were analyzed through‘t’-test and ANOVA statistical techniques. The statistical findings revealed that experimental group insignificantly in Body Mass Index through swimming training. Conclusions 1. Insignificant improvement has been shown by both the Control and Experimental group in Body Mass Index after 48 weeks of swimming programme. 2. Both the Experimental and Control group have shown insignificant improvement in Body Weight after 48 weeks of Experimental programme. The Experimental as well as Control group have shown significant improvement in Standing Height after 48 weeks of Experimental treatment. The Experimental group also shown significant improvement in between mid and Post-test, whereas Control group did not shown such result in between mid and Post-test.
