The purpose of the study was to find out the effect of aerobic exercise on selected health related physical fitness variables such as muscular endurance, cardio respiratory endurance, flexibility and Body mass index of male adolescents. To achieve the purpose of this study thirty school boys were selected at random from Tirunelveli District. Their age ranged from 14 to 17 years. They were divided in to two groups and designed as Experimental group 'A' and Control group 'B' The Experimental

The data were collected before and after the exercises programme and statistically analyzed by using analysis of covariance (ANCOVA).The result of this study indicated that muscular endurance, cardio respiratory endurance significantly improved and also it was observed that Body mass Index significantly reduced.
