Differences in Vo2 Maximum Value Post Resistance Exercises Between Male and Female

Dr. Chinmoyee Baruah Hazra [2] | Dr. Kusum Agarwal [2]

Abstract: VO2 max is commonly used in clinical science as an indicator of cardiovascular fitness and its associated pathology. A sub maximal exercise test called the Queen's College Step Test (QCT) is used to gauge cardio respiratory fitness. This study was a Pilot type of study comparing two groups (Group A - Males, Group B - Females).30 students were randomly selected where 15 were males and 15 females of age group between 20 - 25 yrs. After assessing strength of all students using Repetition maximum method, the average weight selected for the resistance training was 3Kg.8 students were excluded as they were unable to meet the inclusion criteria of lifting 3Kg weight. Both the groups were given resistance exercises for 4 weeks, 3 days per week. Pre and Post completion of the exercises their VO2max was calculated. Statistical analysis were done using SPSS v26 software and the data were tested using paired t - test. We have compared the pre and post intervention data within groups and post intervention data between groups using paired t - test. After the intervention, both males and females experienced similar positive changes in their VO2 max. However, comparatively Female Population has shown better improvement as compared to Male population in their VO2 max value.
