ABSTRACT
This research included 30 Female student aged 14+ which made up the Experimental group, and 30 the Control group selected from Mody School, a division of Mody Institute of Education and Research, Rajasthan (INDIA). The Effects of a Rhythmic Activity on Selected Physiological Parameters and Physical Fitness Profiles of School Going Girl's were studied. The Experimental model of the recreational aerobic exercise model was realized six times a week, over a period of six weeks, and the duration of each individual exercise was 60 minutes. The variables used for Physiological parameters were pulse rate, vital capacity and Blood pressure. Physical fitness profiles were accessed by using the variables muscular strength, muscular endurance, cardiovascular endurance and flexibility. For rhythmic activity, aerobic dance was considered. The study was considered only for six weeks duration. The basic descriptive statistic parameters were calculated for all of the results, and the difference between the initial and final measuring was determined by 't' test. A statistically significant difference was found to exist between the initial and final measuring in regards to the applied variables for the evaluation of Physical and Physiological variables of the subjects belonging to the experimental group, while there were no statistically significant differences found in the case of the subjects belonging to the control group. Group statistics and Independent t-test analysis revels that there is significant effect of rhythmic activity on the Strength endurance, Cardiovascular-endurance, Flexibility and Vital capacity. And there was no significant effect on the parameters viz. Explosive strength, Resting pulse rate, Systolic B.P., Diastolic B.P. This research supports the existing conclusions about the positive effects of rhythmic activity, on the condition that it is realized with the appropriate intensity, length and duration.
