The purpose of the study is to find out the effects of resistance training on Diastolic blood pressure. fifteen (N=15) men studying in Annamalai University Tamilnadu, India were randomly selected as subjects. The age, height and weight of the subjects ranged from 18 to 21 years, 162 to 171 cms and 60 to 68 kg respectively, and the standard deviations were 0.14, 0.06, and 0.09 kilograms respectively.
Subjects selected (n=15) underwent Resistance Training for twelve weeks. A written consent was also obtained from the subjects. However, they were free to withdraw their consent in case they felt any discomfort during the period of their participation. There were no such dropouts in this study.
The data collected from the subject prior to and immediately after the training programme on the selected criterion variables were statistically analysed with dependent ‘t’ test the dependent ‘t’ test values between the pre and posttest means of Resistance Training is 4.14 respectively. Since the obtained ‘t’-test value of experimental groups is greater than the table value 2.15 with df 14 at .05 level of confidence, it is concluded that Resistance Training have registered significant improvement in performance of Diastolic Blood Pressure.
