Dr.M.Suresh Kumar & A. Dinesh Kumar
The purpose of this study was to find out the effect of yoga on total cholesterol among overweight professional college students. To achieve the purpose of the present study, thirty overweight professional college students from Kings Engineering College, Namakkal, India were selected as subjects at random and their ages ranged from 18 to 23 years. The subjects were divided into two equal groups. The study was formulated as a true random group design, consisting of a pre-test and post-test. The subjects (n= 30) were randomly assigned to two equal groups of fifteen overweight professional college students each. The groups were assigned as control group and experimental group in an equivalent manner. The training group participated the training for a period of six weeks and the post-tests were conducted. The subjects were tested prior to and after the experimentation on total cholesterol. The variable to be used in the present study was collected from all subjects before they have to treat with the respective treatments. It was assumed as pre-test. After completion of treatment they were tested again as it was in the pre-test on all variables used in the present study. This test was assumed as post-test. The following statistical techniques were adopted to treat the collected data in connection with established hypothesis and objectives of this study. Analysis of covariance (ANCOVA) was used to test the treatment effect of the training programmes on all the variables used in the study. The experimental group had achieved significant reduction on total cholesterol than the control group.
