The purpose of this study was to find out the effect of yogic practices on selected physical variables among college men Kabaddi Players. To achieve the purpose of the present study 30 players from Government College, Chittur, Palakkad were selected. The 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 men players each. The groups were assigned as yogic practices and control groups in an equivalent manner. The experimental group participated for a period of six weeks and the post-tests were conducted. Endurance was assessed by cooper’s 12 minute run test and flexibility was assessed by sit and reach test. 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. Analysis of covariance (ANCOVA) was used to test the treatment effect of the training programmes on all the variables used in the study. It was observed that the six weeks of yogic practices have significantly improved the selected physical variables among college men kabaddi players.
