The purpose of the present study was to find out the effects of cross training programme on Body composition variables of M.P.Ed. and B.P.Ed male students of S.R.S Chahal College of Physical Education, Kalayan, Patiala, Punjab. To achieve this purpose, twenty M.P.Ed & twenty B.P.Ed male students were randomly selected as subjects. The age of the subjects ranged between 19-23years. Two months cross training programme (morning and evening activity) was provided to all subjects. Pre-test was

Body composition i.e. total body weight, skinfold measurements (Sum of Triceps and Calf), lean body mass and fat weight were chosen as criterion variables. Body composition was measured by total body weight (measured with the help of weighing machine), skinfold measurement (Sum of Triceps and Calf), lean body mass (measured by total body weight minus the weight of body's fat) and fat weight, were chosen as criterion variables. In order to find out the differences between the pre-test and post-test t-ratio was applied. The results of the study showed that total body weight was increased after two months cross training programme. Sum of skinfold measurement and fat weight was decreased whereas lean body mass was slightly increased but not to the significant level. The results of the study also showed that the effect of cross training programme was more on M.P.Ed students rather than B.P.Ed students.
