Abstract

Nowadays, yoga is getting more attention than before, and it has become the backbone of professional athletes and sports teams. It is gaining more popularity in sports research like weight or resistance with yoga, and it is a novel approach in the field of sports research. Also, the researchers are discovering the countless ways that yoga can be used to improve athletic performance. This research aims to find out the effect of functional strength training with and without vinyasa flow yoga on selected physical and physiological variables on men soccer players. To accomplish the purpose of the current study forty-five youth soccer players, age ranged from 20 to 25 years old randomly select from colleges under University of Madras, Chennai. The duration of the study period was twelve weeks, and they were randomly divided and employed in three equal groups, consist of 15 members each. Group-I had given functional strength training, Group-II had given functional strength training with vinyasa flow yoga, and Group-III was control which hasn‘t receive any unique pieces of exercise apart from the regular activities. The functional strength training and functional strength training with vinyasa flow yoga have selected as independent variables. Cardiovascular Endurance and Resting Pulse Rate have chosen as dependent variables. And all dependent variables were measured by standardized test tools as Cooper 12 Minutes Run/Walk test and Dr. Trust (USA) Professional Series Finger Tip Pulse Ox meter and Respiratory Rate monitor. Analysis of Covariance (ANCOVA) was applied to find out the significant mean differences. In all the cases, the 0.05 level of significance fixed to test the hypothesis. The results of the study have shown that the experimental groups had finished a significant difference in all the selected variables such as Cardiovascular Endurance and Resting Pulse Rate as compared with the control group. Hence, it was concluded that Experimental group-II had more significant improvement in Cardiovascular Endurance and Resting Pulse Rate on the soccer players when compared to Experimental group-I and Control group.
