Objective: To find out the effect of aerobic and aerobic cross training programs on coronary heart disease and bio-motor variables among obese males from pre to post-test.
Method: The design of this study carried out experimental research with a pre and post test for two groups formed on the basis of Body Mass Index (BMI).
Subjects: Sixty obese male subjects from King Fahd University of Petroleum and Minerals will be selected to participate in the study. Age of the participants was in the range between 18 and 22 years. Subjects were segregated into two groups namely (aerobics training group, aerobic cross training group). The duration of the training program was 45 minutes per session, twice per week. All the participants from both the groups were tested prior and after 12 weeks of program. The selected Coronary Heart Disease (CHD) variables were tested at the KFUPM clinic laboratory. Bio-motor variables will be tested by the investigators at the physical education department.
Statistical Analysis: Mean S.D and t-test were computed for pre and post data scores analysis to find the difference among groups. The level of significance was set at .05 levels and SPSS 16 was used for analysing data.
Results and Discussion: Coronary heart disease variables: The analyzing of data reveals that both the groups, Aerobic Training Group (ATG) and step Aerobics Training Group (ACTG) improved from pre to post test in all the selected coronary heart diseases variables. Bio-Motor variables: The analyzing of data reveals that the selected bio-motor variables from pre to post test among both the groups had revealed improved performance. Conclusion: It was concluded that the both the groups Aerobic Training Group (ATG) and step Aerobics Training Group (ACTG) had shows significant improvement in all the selected coronary heart diseases variables selected bio-motor variables.
