The Effects of 108-Bae Program on BodyComposition and Physical Fitness of Obese High School Students


This study focused on a program that can help to improve physical fitness and body composition of students whose basic physical fitness have deteriorated due to extreme obesity. First, after 108-Bae training program for 12 weeks, 5 factors were analyzed including muscular strength (grip strength), muscular endurance (sit-ups), power (50m sprint), flexibility (trunk forward flexion) and cardiovascular endurance (long-distance running). And the results show all the factors showed statistically significant improvement. Second, changes in body composition on showed that after 108-Bae training, there was significant decrease in the amount of body fat, BMI, body fat percentage and abdominal fat rate, and there was no significant difference in skeletal muscle mass. Therefore, it is thought that 108-Bae training program for students with obesity and low physical fitness has positive effects on improvement in the change of body composition and physical fitness.
