The results revealed that the both Group showed significant improvement in 12 minute cooper run test and modified sit and reach test. Also, between group comparison revealed significant difference between the two techniques in 12 minute cooper run test (z value= - 7.599, p value<0.05) modified sit and reach test (z value= - 3.621, p value <0.05) for young individual.
