All the subjects were residents at different places of Urban Areas of Gwalior. The functional efficiency parameter selected for this study was Upper Body Strength, A whole twelve weeks on alternate days for a 50-60 minutes training program was employed. After the completion of twelve weeks training program, data were collected as a raw score from the groups on physical fitness parameters. The paired t-test was employed to find out the significant difference in upper body strength. After calculation t-value was obtained as-34.720, which was greater than the tabulated t value of 2.021at the.05 level, and found a significant difference in a selected variable.
