Impact of Isolated and Combined Core Strength Training on Selected Pulmonary Variables (VO2 and FEV1)

For the purpose of the study 45 students from Government Higher Secondary school Kumarchi Tamil Nadu India were selected as subjects. The subjects were divided into three (3) groups of fifteen (15), namely yogic practice group, core strength and combined training group. The VO2max (Maximum oxygen consumption) and FEV1 (Forced Expiratory Volume One Second) were selected as variables. The selected subjects were given training for 12 weeks, 4 days a week and 45 to 60 minutes per day with suitable warming up and cooling down exercise. The criterion variables were tested prior to and immediately after the training programme. The collected data were analysed using ANCOVA (analysis of covariance) and Scheffes post hoc test was applied to know the paired mean differences if the optioned ‘F’ ratio was significant. The level of significance fixed at 0.05. After investigate the study, there was a significant difference among experimental groups on selected VO2max and FEV1 parameters.
Key Words: Pulmonary Variable, Vo2 Max, Fev1, Adolescent School Boys.
