Abstract:
The main purpose of this study was to investigate the effect of 12 week aerobic exercise on selected health related physical fitness components. The study design was Experimental method. Simple random sampling technique were used to select subjects as well as to assign subjects for control group (EG) and experimental group (CG) while purposive sampling were used to select the sample sex and the study place, the data were analyzed 60 male sample was taken from a population of 71 male students by Slovins formula, the selected subjects were divided into 2 equal groups (n=30) CG and (n=30) EG was implemented. Their age range was from 18-22 years. EG who performed in 3 days/week for 3-month aerobic exercise training program like as walking, jogging, running and rope skipping and a CG did not perform this selected aerobic training unless both groups undergone normal physical education class program. Both groups had taken pre, during and post-testing. PT of two groups of 30 subjects(ME was measured by 900angle push up test, CVE was measured using 12 minute run test, and flexibility was measured using sit and reach test) were recorded. After six weeks of aerobic exercise training, DT was taken in each parameter and a little improvement in each test results was observed and training was continually given by increasing its duration. After three months, posttest measurement on the same parameters was taken. The difference between the tests were analyzed statistically, with paired sample “t” test at the level of significance was P<0.05 to determine the difference between initial and final mean for participant. According to analyzed data the mean difference value After 12 week’s aerobic exercise boosted in pushup Performance by 1.76, in 12meter run 638mean difference was recorded, and in sit and reach test 0.53increments were observed throughout the study period. The result obtained in this study indicated that there were significant improvement in ME, CVE, and flexibility. Based on this finding, it can be concluded that Moderate aerobic exercise has positive effect on improvement of selected health related physical fitness components of male students.
