Aims: To find out the effect of isolated and combined training of aerobic and yoga on creatine kinase among sports women. Methods: Creatine kinase (CK) is a protein that is found almost exclusively in muscle tissue. When skeletal muscle damage or disruption of muscle fibre occurs as a result of acute exercise, CK gets leaked into the blood stream. Hence it is considered as the most common plasma marker of muscle damage. Sixty female students (age between 18 to 25 years) were selected as subjects from various departments of Annamalai University, India to participate in this study. They were divided into four equal groups, group I underwent aerobic training, group II underwent yogic training, group III underwent combined training and group IV acted as control (who did not participate in any special training apart from their routine activities). The subjects were tested on selected criterion variable such as creatine kinase prior to and immediately after the training period. Results: The study indicates that there is a significant difference among aerobic, yoga, combined training groups and control group. Conclusion: There is a significant difference among the experimental and control group on the activities of CK, which confirms that the skeletal damage or disruption of muscle fibre happening in subjects recruited in our study.
