Abstract:
Overweight as one of the today’s most important public health issues, which is escalating as a global epidemic. The purpose of the present study was an endeavor to the best method of handling overweight. Out of ninety-six selected participants from fluvio coastal zone of west Bengal, India on the basis of BMI, eighty overweight girls (average age:20) were consider for the study. The subjects were divided into four groups (20 for each group) randomly namely Weight Training Group (WTG), Aerobic Training Group (ATG), Graded Circuit Training Group (GCTG) and Control Group (CG). Separately designed 12 weeks training programme for WTG, ATG and GCTG was applied on the subjects at morning between 8.00 am to 9.15am for three alternative days per week. After every four weeks, total load was increased. Pre and post test on the groups were conducted to measure the training effect on Body Muscle Mass of the subjects. The collected data were statistically analyzed by using the analysis of Co-variance (p<0.05) to determine differences, the LSD test was applied as a post hoc test to find out the paired mean differences. From the obtaining result, it was concluded that weight training, aerobics and graded circuit training are found to be effective for improvement of Hip Circumference of overweight college girls.
