The absence of information about health related physical fitness of young boys, The present investigation was to find out the effect of callisthenic exercises with and without core training on selected health related physical fitness variables among overweight non-coastal area school boys. To achieve the purpose of the study 400 school boys were selected from Chennai non-coastal area and they were screened by BMI testing tool. After the screening 75 overweight school boys were randomly selected as a subject. Their age ranges from 14 to 16 years. They were divided into three equal groups consist of 25 subjects. Group - I underwent Callisthenic Exercises Training with Core Training (CETWCT), and Group – II underwent Callisthenic Exercises Training without Core Training (CETWOCT) and Group – III Control group (CG) did not exposed to any training. The experimental training Period limited with 5 days in a week of 6 weeks. The selected criterion variables such as cardiovascular endurance, strength and flexibility were measured by 12min Coopers test, Bend Knee Sit-ups and Sit and Reach test. The collected data were analyzed statistically by Analysis of Covariance (ANCOVA) and whenever the ‘F’ ratio for the adjusted test was found to be significant Scheffe’s Post hoc test will be used. In all cases, 0.05 level of significance was fixed. The results of the study proved that selected criterion variables were significantly improved due to callisthenic exercise with and without core training, and also it proved that callisthenic exercise with core training (CETWCT)was better than the callisthenic exercise without core training (CETWOCT)among overweight coastal area school boys.
