To Compare Effect of Upper Extremity and Lower Extremity Exercise Training on Pulmonary Function in Normal Healthy Young Women

Pragna Gondaliya, Dr. Nrupal Patel


Abstract: Background: healthy young female is at risk of developing pulmonary complication due to increase pollution in environment. Hence monitoring physical fitness is an important factor to live normal healthy life. PFT is one of the most reliable and valid tests to measure respiratory fitness. Objective: To compare the effect of upper extremity and lower extremity exercise training on pulmonary function in normal healthy young female. Methods: Sixty subjects were randomly selected and assigned to two groups through block randomization. They were assessed on the basis of pulmonary function test. Subjects in group-A has received upper extremity exercise training and group-B has received lower extremity exercise training. They underwent exercise training five days a week for six weeks. Outcome measures used in the study were FVC, FEV1, and MVV that is pulmonary function test was taken pre and post training. Results: Upper extremity and lower extremity exercise training resulted in significant improvement in pulmonary function. But lower extremity exercise training was comparatively better than the upper extremity exercise training to improve pulmonary function in short duration. Conclusion: Efficacy of lower extremity exercise is higher over upper extremity exercise training on pulmonary function in normal healthy young female.
