A Study of Effect of Uphill Running Training and Staircase Training on Vital Capacity

Abstract Purpose: The purpose of the study was to investigate the effect of uphill running and staircase training on vital capacity on undergraduate male students. Method: The subjects were sixty male, all subjects were BPEd second year student of Lakshmibai National Institute of Physical Education, North East Regional Center, Guwahati. The age of subject ranged between 18-12 years. The vital capacity test were administered in exercise physiological laboratory of LNIPE, NERC to obtain the data. The data pertaining to vital capacity were examined by one way analysis of covariance (ANCOVA) in order to determine the difference, if any. The level of significant was set at 0.05 levels for testing the hypothesis. Result: The selected variable vital capacity (F ratio 4.67),) was significant which was higher than tabulated value (3.18) at 0.05 level of significance. Conclusion: On the basis of the analysis of data and the limitation of the present study the conclusion were drawn as there is significant effect of both uphill and staircase training on vital capacity.
