Abstract
The purpose of this study was to find out the effects of Asanas and varied pranayama practices on physiological variables among inter collegiate players. To achieve the purpose of the study (N=60) sixty inter collegiate players were randomly selected from three engineering College AIT, KCT and SRE College, Coimbatore and their age ranged between 18 and 25. The subjects were divided into three equal groups. Experimental Group I named as Asanas and varied pranayama (Sithali and Sitkari), Experimental Group II named as Asanas and varied pranayama (Bhastrika and Kapalbhati) practices and Group III acted as control group (CG) pre – test was conducted for all the groups on selected variables and the score was recorded in their respective units as pre – test score. After pre – test the experimental group were treated with their respective training for three day per week for a period of twelve weeks. After completion of twelve weeks of training post – test was conducted on selected variables and the score were records in their respective units as post – test score. The pre and post test scores were analyzed with analysis of Co – variance and Schaffe’s post hoc test. In all the cases.0.5 level of significance was fixed. The results of the study showed that there was a significant difference found among the experimental groups. Asanas and varied pranayama (Bhastrika and Kapalbhati) practices Group is found to be better than other groups.
