A total of 40 sedentary male subjects were selected and used as one experimental group (20) and other control group (20). Bhramari Pranayama was considered the independent variable and state Anxiety was considered the dependent variable. Anxiety was measured with STAS Anxiety Questionnaire. Training was given up to two months. 3 times in week; each session scheduled for 40 minutes. The pre test post test randomize group design was used for this study. Tests were administered before the training programme and after the completion of the treatment again test were administered.

Author:Shirish V. Topare
Volume: 9 | Issue no: 1 and 2-2016 | Pagination: 10-17
The biochemical responses to any exercise activity are extremely important indicators of the quantity and quality of training being given to the sports person. The chief purpose of present study was to analyze the biochemical responses to sprint swimming and long-distance swimming and variations in these responses during different training seasons. For this purpose, the subjects were assigned to two groups. ?Group A? was of sprint swimmers and ?Group B? was of longdistance swimmers. Each group consisted of thirty subjects. For each group, subjects were selected by using ?Random sampling method? from the available trained level swimmers. The duration of experimental period was of sixteen weeks. This period was divided into three seasons. These seasons were: Preparatory season, Peak season and Taper season. The biochemical tests were done after collecting blood samples of subjects. The difference in biochemical responses before and after activity was tested. Such tests were carried out in the beginning i.e. start of the experimental programme and at the end of each training season and the variations in these responses were tested. The results of the group of sprint swimmers indicated that, there is no significant difference in pre-swimming and post-swimming total cholesterol levels at all stages of the experiment. But observation of variations in these responses during different training seasons indicates that, the total cholesterol level decreased gradually during each season. The greatest decrease in total cholesterol level was observed at the end of peak season in both groups.
Survey Of Nutritional Assessment In Relation To Waist To Hip Ratio And Waist To Height Ratio Among School Going Children
Author:Pradeep Singh Chahar
Volume: 9 | Issue no: 1 and 2-2016 | Pagination: 5-9
The purpose of this study was to survey the nutritional status in relation to waist-to hip ratio and waist to height ratio among school going children of Gwalior city.A total of hundred (n = 100) male subjects from KendriyaVidyalayas of Gwalior city studying in classes from 10th to 12th standard with age ranged from 14 to 18 years were selected for this study. All the subjects were examined for nutritional status, waist hip ratio and waist to height ratio. Results revealed that majority of subjects in waist hip ratio fall under the ideal-very low risk, while extremely slim category in waist to height ratio. Further, pearson product moment correlation result revealed that nutritional status was significantly correlated with waist to hip ratio (-0.340; p<0.05) and insignificantly correlated with waist to height ratio (-0.073; p>0.05). Therefore, it may be concluded that waist hip ratio can be used as a predictor for nutritional deficiencies. There are many plausible reasons behind the school going childrens? being suffering from indecent nutritional status. Developing good practices early in life, will benefited in future.

Author:C. Kiran Chakravarthi
Volume: 9 | Issue no: 1 and 2-2016 | Pagination: 1-4
The primary aim of the present study was to examine the effect of changing the humidity of the environmental air upon exercise capacity measured by peak oxygen uptake (VO2 peak), peak ventilation (V Epeak) and peak running speed (V peak) and secondarily to assess the influence of environmental humidity upon EIB in subjects suffering from EIB. Twenty subjects (10?45 years old, male/female:13/7) with diagnosed EIB performed exercise testing under standardised, regular environmental conditions, 20.2°C (±1.1) and 40 per cent (±3.3) relative humidity [mean (±sd)] and under standardised humid environmental conditions, 19.9°C (±1.0) and 95 per cent (±1.7) relative humidity in random order on separate days. Lung function was measured before and 1, 3, 6, 10 and 15min after exercise. Heart rate (HR), oxygen uptake (VO2), respiratory gas exchange ratio (RER), breathing frequency (BF) and minute ventilation (VE) were measured during exercise. The results were indentified that VO2 peak and V peak increased significantly from 40 per cent to 95 per cent relative humidity of the environmental air, 4.5 per cent and 5.9 per cent, respectively (P=0.001). HRpeak increased significantly in the humid environment, while BFpeak decreased significantly. The conclusion that exercises capacity (VO2 peak and V peak) markedly improved during exercise in humid air in subjects with EIB, whereas EIB was reduced to the half.

Author:Meenu, Amit1 And Santosh1
Volume: 7 | Issue no: 1-2014 | Pagination: 42-43
The purpose of the present study was to find out the comparison of physical fitness components of rural and urban female basketball players. The study was done on 50 female sportswomen. The age ranged between 18 to 25 years. Strength, is the extent to which muscles can exert force by contracting against resistance. Speed, distance travelled per unit time. Further the data of pre-test and post-test was collected through standardized tools 50 Yard Dash (Speed) and Standing Broad Jump (Strength) and data was analysis by ?t: test. After comparing of the present data it was found that rural female basketball players had high speed and strength than urban female basketball players. In the end of the study it was concluded that rural female player had more effect on speed and strength.

A Comparative Study On Comparison Of Maximum Leg Strength Of Non- Preferred And Preferred Leg Of University Male Soccer Players
Author:Vijender Rathi,Manoj Sahu1 And Karan Deb1
Volume: 7 | Issue no: 1-2014 | Pagination: 32-35
Most soccer players have favoured foot for kicking the ball, and it is believed that this preference may lead to an asymmetry in the strength of the lower extremities. Thus, this study was designed to determine whether asymmetry in strength is present in the legs of soccer players forty elite and sub-elite soccer players (Mean age: 20.775 SD: 2.224427) were studied (data are presented as mean+SD). The strength of legs (hamstrings and quadriceps) was measured using a leg dynamometer A significant difference between the preferred and non-preferred leg was found in (hamstrings and quadriceps) both the cases the hamstrings and quadriceps of the preferred leg were stronger than those of the non-preferred leg. It is concluded that the lower strength of the knee flex or muscles of the preferred leg may be associated with the differential use of these muscle during the kicking action and thus, constitutes a unique training effect associated with soccer. This in turn can lead to muscular imbalance which is generally regarded as an injury risk factor.
