Saroj Malik, Meenakshi Yadav
Pulse rate is frequently used as a measure of a person’s physical fitness. A low resting pulse rate is usually taken as an indication that the person is physically fit. A person’s pulse rate increases with physical activity, and this increase is often monitored during exercise to ensure that he or she is working out at the correct level of exertion. The study was delimited to the pulse rate only. The subjects were divided into two equal groups, consisting of the 15 subjects each, i.e. experimental and control group. In order to determine the significant difference between experimental group and control group after administering the treatment, the pre and post test score are collected, the initial and final test score were analyzed using‘t’ ratio at 0.05 level of significance. On the basis of the findings six weeks fitness programme was found to be effective on Pulse rate on experimental group. Certain factor like life style, routine work, diet etc. may have affected the result of this investigation acted as limitation for the study.
