Bharathiar National Journal of Physical Education and Exercise Science <p>Bharathiar National Journal of Physical Education and Exercise Science (BNJPEES) is an open access quarterly journal, double blind peer reviewed journal with ISSN – 0976-3678 which publishes original articles, commentary, editorials, review articles and case reports covering recent innovative high quality researches on sports published by the Department of Physical Education, Bharathiar University Coimbatore since June 2010.</p> Bharathiar National Journal of Physical Education and Exercise Science en-US Bharathiar National Journal of Physical Education and Exercise Science 0976-3678 COMPARATIVE STUDY ON FLEXIBILITY AND BALANCE BETWEEN DANCER AND NON-DANCER BOYS <p>Dance is a form of art that normally involves rhythmic movement of the body and accompanied with music. The author being a dancer in fervour and passion as well as an aspirant of the profession Physical Education strived to conduct the study bearing the title of Comparative Study on Balance and Flexibility between Dancer and Non-Dancer Boys. The researcher selected 30 boys who are regularly involved in 15 Dancer and 15 Non-dancer boys rather sedentary on the basis of purposive stratified random sampling from Bharathiar University students as the subjects of his study. He incorporated Sit and Reach test for assessment of Flexibility and Stork Stand Balance for assessment of tests Balance respectively. With respect to data analysis initially descriptive statics like mean SD and range and further paired sample T test was conducted to ascertain the degree of difference between the means with the help of SPSS soft ware. Data analysis proved significant difference between the Dancer and Non-dancer Boys both with respect to flexibility and Balance. In both the cases the Dancer boys proved to be better though the differences were not statistically significant. Thus, the author arrived at the conclusion that dance involving passion, strength, stamina, enthusiasm, rhythm, amusement and many more could be a wonderful fitness activity similar to other fitness activities like jogging, running, cycling, swimming etc.</p> KODEESWARAN N MURUGAVEL K Copyright (c) 2021 KODEESWARAN N, MURUGAVEL K 2021-01-14 2021-01-14 12 1 01 04 DANCE AND WALKING: TOWARDS RESURGENCE TO HEALTHY LIFE DURING COVID LOCKDOWN <p>Health is important asset for human kind. And non-impact exercise can really advisable to promote cardiac health during the Covid-19 lockdown. The purpose of this study was to find out the effect of dance and walking exercise on Resting Heartrate (RHR), VO<sub>2</sub> max and Body Mass Index (BMI). To achieve the purpose forty-five females (mean age was 30 ± 1.3 years, BMI 26.37 ± 1.36) were purposively selected and divided in to Bharathanatyam dance group (BD. n=15), Health related walkers (HW, n=15) and Control Group (n=15) from Jaffna, Sri Lanka. Bharathanatyam (BD) dancers had been dancing 90 to 120 min per day; 3 days per week over a period of minimum 12 weeks. and health walkers were walking 40-60 min (Covers 4-5 KM) /3 time / week/over the period of 12 weeks.&nbsp; Data were collected on resting heart rate (RHR) using Palpating the radial artery for full one minute for each subject, VO<sub>2</sub> max by Queen’s step test [McArdle et al. (1972)] and BMI by Adolphe quetelet formula. Each test conducted on one day after another day. The collected data were subjected to statistical treatment using paired sample ‘’t’’ test to find out the training effect. In all the cases 0.05 level of confidence was fixed to test the significance, which was considered as appropriate.&nbsp; The result shows that Bharathanatyam Dancers and walking exercise are positively influence on RHR, VO<sub>2</sub> max and BMI. Hence it was concluded that, less impact physical activity such as bharathanatyam dance and walking are best choice to maintain safest health status during covid lockdown.</p> SABAANANTH S Copyright (c) 2021 SABAANANTH S 2021-01-14 2021-01-14 12 1 05 13 IMPACT OF SPEED BASED SKILL TRAINING AFTER ANKLE WEIGHT RESISTANCE TRAINING ON SELECTED PHYSICAL AND SKILL PERFORMANCE OF MEN FOOTBALLERS <p>The study was designed to know about the importance of speed based skill training after ankle weight resistance training on selected physical and skill performance of men footballers. In order to achieve the study, 40 men footballers were selected from Bharathiar university department and affiliated colleges, of Bharathiar university coimbatore, their age ranged between 18 and 25 years. The selected population were divided into two equal groups consist of 20 each. The group I (n=20) was considered as experimental group and group II (n=20) was considered as control group. The investigators did not made any attempt to equate the group. The control group was not given any treatment and the experimental group was given speed based skill training after ankle weight resistance training for three days per week, for a period of twelve weeks.&nbsp; Explosive power was assessed by standing broad jump test and unit of measurement was in meters and kicking ability was assessed by warner soccer test and unit of measurement was in meters.&nbsp; The collected&nbsp;&nbsp; data&nbsp;&nbsp; on selected physical and skill performance variables was analyzed by using‘t’ test at 0.05 level of confidence. The result of the present study explored that the explosive power and kicking ability significantly improved due to the speed based skill training after ankle weight resistance training on selected physical and skill performance of men footballers.</p> MURUGAVEL K NANDAGOPAL D NIRENDAN J Copyright (c) 2021 MURUGAVEL K, NANDAGOPAL D, NIRENDAN J 2021-01-14 2021-01-14 12 1 14 23 CHOCOLATE MILK: A PRE-EXERCISE DRINK <p>Purpose: The purpose of this study is to examine the effect of chocolate milk as a pre-exercise supplements field setting in male participants. At this end of the investigation, we tested the effects of commercially-available drinks on glucose in a field-based experiment with male participants</p> <p>Methods: eleven male participants have volunteered for this experiment. Measure included in this study is glucose level. Participants were requested consume chocolate milk before the start of the exercise. After 20 (twenty) minutes from the consumption of chocolate milk, the participants were instructed to do exercise for 45 (forty-five) minutes.</p> <p>Results: A 2 (group) × 4 (time) repeated measures ANOVA showed there was a significant interaction of glucose score between groups. At the beginning the glucose level for both groups (Test I), glucose level is increased almost 11.24% in Test II which is taken after 20 minutes from the Test I. Test III which is taken immediately after exercise 45 minutes from the glucose level is increased 5.70% when compared to no drink. Test IV is taken immediately after 20 minutes of rest the glucose level is increased 7.14% compared no drink.</p> <p>Conclusion: This is the first study comparing the impact of Chocolate Milk as pre exercise drink on male participants in field base experiments. Chocolate Milk had a more positive effect on glucose should be considered as pre-exercise drink. Doing with more participants and longer days of experiments will give a clear evidence in futuristic research</p> PRABHU PANDIAN P RAJKUMAR M ANAND JADHAV LINGARAJ N Copyright (c) 2021 PRABHU PANDIAN P, RAJKUMAR M, ANAND JADHAV, LINGARAJ N 2021-01-14 2021-01-14 12 1 24 29
