Study on Short Term Effect of Lactose Sugar Intake on Various Physical Fitness Parameters
The purpose of the present study was to observe the effect of consumption of Lactose Sugar (a form of simple
Carbohydrate) on immediate athletic performance of C.P.Ed students of Chaudhary Devi Lal University, Sirsa. Total 10
students were selected for this study. The age ranged from 18 to 24 years. There were five boys and five girls selected as
subjects. In this study components of AAPHER youth fitness test were applied to check and observe the energy level and the
effect on performance of athletes. Data was recorded Pre test and after immediate consumption of lactose dose and after 4
hours to check the variation in performance of the subjects. Data was analyzed using statistical tool of ANOVA. It was
concluded that although Lactose sugar remains a good source of energy, however should not be taken immediately before
the exercise or games as the optimum performance can only be achieved if it is taken 3-4 hours before the event and it is not
the best source of immediate energy.
