Effects of Aerobic and Anaerobic Training Followed by Cessation on Diastolic Blood Pressure of Anna University Men Players


The purpose of the study was to find out the effects of aerobic and anaerobic training followed by cessation on diastolic blood pressure of Anna university men players. To achieve this purpose of the study, forty five men students who were studying in various affiliated engineering colleges of Anna university zone VII and who were participated in intercollegiate tournaments during the year 2012-13 were randomly selected as subjects. They were divided into three equal groups of each fifteen subjects. The group I underwent aerobic training, group II underwent anaerobic training group and group III acted as control group for three days per week for twelve weeks. Diastolic blood pressure was assessed by sphygmomanometer and scores in mmhg. All the subjects of three groups were tested on systolic blood pressure at prior to and immediately after the training programme as pre and post test. Analysis of covariance (ANCOVA) was used to find out the significant difference if any, among the groups on each selected criterion variables separately. In all the cases 0.05 level of confidence was fixed to test the significance, which was considered as appropriate. The results of the study indicated that the experimental groups namely aerobic training and anaerobic training group had significantly influenced on the performance of the diastolic blood pressure. The control group had no significant differences on diastolic blood pressure.
