Abstract

Circuit trainingaddresses both the components of exercise i.e. strength and aerobic which can be administered to participants in a playful manner. As the large number of children will have to gather at one place for the intervention, so it will be beneficial for the therapist also to conduct the session by incorporating them into small groups. Very few have shown the effects of circuit training in hemophilia Therefore it becomes necessary to provide an exercise regimen to children which will be interesting to perform in order to improve their general fitness level. Methodology: Forty nine participants were selected and screened and were allocated into 7 groups. The intervention was given for 4 weeks period, once a day for 7min with 50 sec for exercise and 10 sec to move from one station to the next. Pre and Post parameters were assessed forVAS for fatigue and Subjective Exercise Experience Scale. Results: Data was analyzed using Graph-Pad InStat software version-trial version 3.03. The statistical measures utilized were mean, standard deviation and test of significance such as Paired‘t’ test to analyze the data. The results were concluded to be statistically significant with p <0.05 and highly significant with p < 0.01. Conclusion: The present study concludes that the circuit training is effective in hemophilic children as its multipronged approach improves various body systems.
