ABSTRACT

The purpose of this study is to determine the effect of physical activity at a moderate workload, i.e walking on a treadmillfor a fixed duration, on pulse rate and blood pressure of young (18-22 years) obese subjects and compare it to normal weight subjects who areage and sex matched. Each group had 25 (13 male and 12 female) subjects. All 50 subjects were selected from first professional M.B.B.S students after following the inclusion and exclusion criteria. All anthropometric data to determine who were obese were collected in a predetermined history proforma. It was seen that the mean of resting systolic blood pressure (S.B.P) and pulse rate did not vary but the resting diastolic blood pressure(DBP) did varyin a statistically significant manner between the two groups. The mean values of both the S.B.P and D.B.P immediately after 6 minutes of exercise too differ significantly in the two groups. Therefore, there are definite changes in blood pressure and pulse rate after dynamic aerobic exercise in obese young adults.

Keywords: Obese, Pulse Rate, S.B.P., D.B.P.
