Effect of Aerobic and Anaerobic Training Programs on Forced Expiratory Volume One Second


The purpose of the study was to find out the effect of aerobic and anaerobic training on forced expiratory volume one second. To achieve this purpose, forty five female students from Annamalai University, Tamilnadu, were randomly selected and divided into three groups of fifteen each. This study consisted of two experimental variables aerobic training and anaerobic training. The allotment of groups was done at random, thus Group-I aerobic training, Group-II anaerobic training for three days per week for twelve weeks, Group-III acted as control. All the subjects were tested prior to and after the experimentation period. The collected data were statistically treated by using ANCOVA, and 0.05 level was fixed as a test the significance. When the obtained ‘F’ ratio was significant, Scheffe’s post hoc test was used to find out the significant paired mean differences. The results of the study revealed that there was a significant difference among aerobic training and anaerobic training groups as compared to control group on forced expiratory volume one second. And also it was found that there was a significant improvement on forced expiratory volume one second due to aerobic training group as compared anaerobic training group.
