The groups were assigned as Experimental Groups I, II and control group respectively. Pre tests were conducted for all the subjects on flexibility and percent of body fat. After the experiment period of twelve weeks post test scores were obtained. The difference between the initial and final scores was considered the effect of the experimental treatment.
