EFFECT OF 6 WEEKS AEROBIC EXERCISES TRAINING PROGRAM TO PHYSICAL FITNESS VARIABLES IN MIDDLE AGED WOMEN

K. Kiran

Abstract


Purpose of the study was to see the effect of 6 weeks aerobics training program to physical fitness variables in middle aged women , the study was conducted 20 middle aged women, age ranging between 35 to 50 years from Gwalior, were selected as subjects of this study. To see the effect of 6 weeks aerobics training program to physical fitness variables in middle aged women, collected data was analyzed by using paired t-test at 0.05 level of significance. And significant difference was found between means of pre & post test in flexibility & grip strength but there is no significant difference found between means of pre and post test in cardio vascular endurance of middle aged women.
