Author(s): S Selvamurugamani and Dr. PK Senthilkumar
The aim of the study was to examine the efficacy of cardio, resistance training and concurrent training on resting metabolic rate and respiratory rate among sedentary Males. To achieve the purpose of the study sixty healthy males (N=60) were randomly assigned into exercising group namely, cardio training group (n=15), resistance training group (n=15), and concurrent (cardio and strength) training group (n=15) a non-exercising control group (n=15). Resting metabolic rate was measured by using after calculation from fat free mass and respiratory rate was estimated number of breathing per minute of the subject’s pre and post-experiment. The results of the study indicated that control group was found to have decreased their Resting metabolic rate, whereas the cardio and resistance training group increased their mean resting metabolic rate and significant reduction in respiratory rate. In conclusion, cardio training and strength training and concurrent training significantly interfere with improvement in resting metabolic rate and reduction in respiratory rate among sedentary males when compared to control one.
