Effect of yogic practices and physical exercises on selected physical and physiological variables among information technology professional
The purpose of the study was to find out the effect of yogic practices and physical exercises on selected physical and physiological variables among Information Technology professional. To achieve these purpose thirty obese women were selected as subjects randomly from Information Technology companies in Chennai, Tamil Nadu. The selected subjects were divided into three equal groups of ten subjects each, namely yogic practices group, physical exercises group and control group. Experimental groups were trained for three alternative days in a week for twelve weeks with their specific training. Physical and physiological Variables such as Endurance and Resting Pulse Rate were selected as criterion variables and they were tested prior to and immediately after the 12 weeks of yogic practices and physical exercises by using Coopers 9 min run/walk Test and Radial Pulse method. The ANCOVA was applied to find out the significant difference in each criterion variables, if any, among the groups. Since, three groups were compared, whenever they obtained ‘F’ ratio for the adjusted post-test means was found to be significant, the Scheffe’s post hoc test was applied to determine the paired mean differences, if any, was used. The results of the study revealed that there was a significant improvement on selected physical and physiological variables due to yogic practices and physical exercises groups as compared to control group.
