Abstract


Present study was conducted with 120 adolescent tribal boys as subjects, randomly divided into four groups namely Group A (Continuous Training), Group B (Interval Training), Group C (Fartlek Training) and Group D (Control) having 30 subjects in each group. With administration of differential aerobic trainings for a period of 12 weeks, it was observed that, the anthropometric parameters like upper arm circumference was increased significantly differently in interval training group, compared with control and continuous training group. Fartlek training group was not different from all other groups. No difference among groups was obtained in chest and waist circumference. Continuous training group proved to be different from other groups in hip and thigh circumference. However in calf circumference, both fartlek and interval training groups were found to be significantly different from control and continuous training groups. Continuous and fartlek training showed significant decrease in biceps and sub scapular skinfold measurement, compared with other two groups without any significant difference between the two. Triceps skinfold measurement was significantly lowered in continuous training group. None of the experimental groups including control differed with regard to suprailiac skinfold measurement under present study
