Comparative study of maximal oxygen uptake among sedentary female workers
Author(s): Dr. Sujoy Birbanshi
Abstract:
Objective: The objective of the current study was to compare the Vo2 Max of sedentary female workers in relation to the four disciplines that were chosen.
Method: The total eighty (twenty sedentary female workers from each discipline) female subjects ranging from 36 to 45 years (Mean ± SD; Age 39.53±2.77 years, Height 1.58±0.05 metre, Weight 61.84±6.77 kg) of age were selected from the different offices of southern region of Bengal (i.e., Purba Bardhaman, Paschim Bardhaman, West Midnapore, Jhargram and Birbhum). The maximum oxygen uptake (VO2 max) is measured using the Queen College Step Test. To compare all the means of Vo2 Max scores measured from sedentary female workers in selected disciplines, one-way analysis of variance (ANOVA) was used at the 0.05level of significance was set.
Results: There was significant difference found between the Vo2 Max of the sedentary female workers from selected disciplines. Since, the one-way analysis of variance was found significant.
Conclusion: Age-related declines in VO 2max appear to happen non-linearly along with decreases in physical activity and exercise. This decline is not linear typically happens in the twenties and thirties in sedentary people, whereas athletes show a non-linear decline after reducing or stopping training. Regular exercise improves cardio-respiratory fitness by boosting VO2 max and lowering body fat percentage, which ultimately improves quality of life. Elements with a higher CVD risk, like central obesity, blood pressure is high as well as too much body fat, and low VO2 max, were brought on by physical inactivity. This study also discovered several strong associations between inactivity and risk factors for CVD include high blood pressure, excessive fat, and low VO2 max.
