An Analytical Study on Breath Hold Capacity and Respiratory Rate in Performing Floor, Skipping and Combined Aerobic Exercise Program of Female High School Students in Wukro City, Ethiopia
Keywords:Aerobic, training, floor, skip, combined. Statistical technique.
The purpose of this study was to investigate the analyze of floor, skipping and combined aerobic exercise
on physiological variables of wukro high school students and to forward possible solutions. In this study
complete experimental design was employed. To select the subjects of the study, simple random sampling
technique was used. The study Subjects (n=80) female students in age range from 15-16 were included. The
selected samples by simple random sampling technique; the samples were grouped in to four of(n=20)G-1
floor aerobic group,(n=20)G-2 skip aerobic group, G-3 combined aerobic group and (n= 20)G-4 control
group. Special training or treatment was provided for groups G-1 and G-2 and G-3 for twelve consecutive
weeks and G-4(control group) did not get any special treatment. The selected physiological variables are
RHR, and breathe hold. The study period was twelve week and three times per week. The statistical technique
used in this study was ANCOVA; post hoc multiple comparisons and Scheffe’s Confidence Interval post hoc
test at the significant level of 0.05. Beside this to compare the post test results mean difference between the
four groups were employed. Result indicated following the treatment of combined aerobic exercise group
on physiological variables significantly improved than skip aerobic, floor aerobic group and control group
and the mean arterial blood pressure had shown not significant improvement. The result concluded that
combined exercise program method shows a better improvement on selected variables due to twelve weeks
training program of wukro female students. Finally, based on the findings and conclusions recommendations
were forwarded to high school students, physical education teachers, fitness trainers and coaches.
