Author(s): Dr. R Ashok Kumar, M Balu and V Karthik Raja
The human body is designed for movement. To develop and maintain peak level of fitness, exercise must be carried out on a regular basis and must be relatively strenuous. The recommended amount from a health perspective is about 20 to 30 minutes of moderate exercise three times a week, though the level of activity which produces a benefit is a factor of the individual initial level of fitness. There are two types of physical fitness that can help to improve physical health. There is aerobic exercise and anaerobic exercise. Aerobic exercise involves a continuous and intensive exercise of the heart and lungs. These exercises help to strengthen the cardiovascular system and heart rate. The second type of physical fitness is anaerobic exercise. This involves with muscular fitness and flexibility. However, this exercise does not improve or strengthen the cardio vascular system but it will improve muscular strength. It is the ability to exert force for a brief period and apply force against any object. Yoga and stretching would be a component of flexibility, which is the ability to move joints using the muscles full range of motion (Chung & Baird, 1999). The purpose of the study was to find out the effect of aerobic exercise programme on development of physical and physiological components in college men. To achieve the purpose of the study fifteen students were selected for the age group of 17 – 22 years in Sri Ramakrishna Mission Vidyalaya College of Arts and Science, Coimbatore. They were only experimental group. The pre-tests were taken the group on selected physical and physiological components. This is speed, flexibility and cardio respiratory endurance. The experimental group underwent the aerobic exercise training programme for six weeks. The end of the training programme post- test conducted for the experimental group. The group were tested before the start of the six week aerobic training programme and after the end of six week training programme. The result of the study there were significant improvement on physical and physiological components among experimental group in speed, flexibility and cardio respiratory endurance.
