Compatibility between Physical Fitness and Work Load among Farm Women
Abstract: The purpose of the study is to examine the physical fitness obtained as per heart rate variable on step stool exercise to heart rate obtained while doing transplantation activity. A field study was undertaken on 20 subjects drawn equally from two age group of farm women i. e. , 20-30 yrs and 31-40 yrs. Physical fitness and physiological work load was assessed by using step stool exercise method and when the women were working in transplantation activity using time and heart rate as variables. Results indicated that the subjects were having poor physical fitness and showed vulnerability of the subjects to disease and impairment due to workloads. The transplantation activity warranted above 60 % of time spent at and above target zones compared to physical fitness exercise leading to conclude that work load in transplantation is more than the endurance level of physical fitness.
