Comparative study of maximum oxygen consumption of different game players


Author(s): Dhananjay Singh, Shrikrishna Patel

Abstract: The demand of oxygen differs from one sport to other sports. It’s a common observation that whenever athlete go for anaerobic type of training his/her anaerobic capacity is enhanced but along with this it is also observed that after anaerobic type of training the aerobic capacity of the athlete is also improves. Thus it is very essential to know that which type of training (aerobic/anaerobic) dominates to a particular sport, or whether combination training is needed. The purpose of the study was to investigate whether there were significant differences between different sports and games in relation to maximum oxygen consumption. Fifty-Six subjects were selected from different match practice groups i.e. basketball (18), hockey (12), judo (6), swimming (4), sprinter (10) and cross country runners (6) from Chhatrapati Shahu Ji Maharaj University, Kanpur U.P. for the study. In order to ascertain significant differences among different sports and games in relation to maximum oxygen consumption ANOVA Test was employed. For further analysis Post-Hoc Test (Scheffe’s Test) is applied. The Cross Country runners had shown highest Vo2 max (71.43) in comparison to all other games and sports. Further the Basketball players (65.58), Hockey players (62.39) and Sprinters (65.01) had more or less same Vo2 max with a small range of variation. On the other hand Judo players had shown (57.77) lowest Vo2 max., Swimmers also shown a lower Vo2 max (58.91) in comparison to all other sports/games except Judo (57.77).
