The analysis of covariance was used to analyze the significant difference, if any between the groups. The level of significance to test the ‘F’ ratio obtained by the Analysis of Covariance was tested .05 level of confidence, which was considered as an appropriate. It was concluded that the experimental group produced significant improvement on cardiorespiratory endurance than the control group.
