Dr. Uday Bhanu Kundu [3]


Abstract: The aim of this study was to observe the impact of Pranayamas on body fat percentage ( %) of subjects with the age range 8 to 10 years. For this 30 male subjects were drawn from Muni International School, A-2/16-18, Mohan Garden, Uttam Nagar New Delhi-110059, India by using simple random sampling. Pre post data were collected before and after intervention of Pranayama for 90 days. Body fat was measured by the lenge skin fold calipers and the sum of the skin fold thickness of all the four sites of the body was converted in to percentage by body fat as suggested by Durnin & Womersley. Since calculated value of t (=1.83) is less than tabulated t0.05 (29) (=2.045) so no significant result was found. It is concluded that significant improvement was not found in Body fat percentage ( %) as a result of the experimental treatment.
