Relationship of Selected Bio-motor Variables to the Performance of 400 Meter Male Sprinters


Author(s): Wazir Singh Phogat, Dr. Ravinder Pal Ahlawat

Abstract: In the present study the efforts have been made to study the relationship of selected bio-motor variables to the performance of 400 National level 25 male sprinters age ranges from 17 to 25 years from the SAI schemes and National camps. To measure the bio-motor abilities 30meter, 30meter flying, 60meter, 300meters, 500meters, Standing Broad Jump, Standing Triple Jump, 10 bounds, Overhead backward throw (4kg Shot), Sit ups (bent knee for 60 seconds) variables were selected for this study. Pearson’s product moment correlation (Zero order) was computed to establish the relationship between the variables to the criterion variable. The Mean and SD values of selected bio-motor variables and performance in 400m sprinters are presented. It has been observed through the findings that 30meter flying, 30 meter standing, 60meter, 300meters, and 500meters have the positive significant correlation with 400m performance at 0.01 levels and 0.05 levels. SBJ (Standing Broad Jump), STJ (Standing Triple Jump), 10 bounds, 4 kg OHBT (Overhead backward throw) and sit-ups (bent knee for 60 seconds) are not significantly correlated with 400 m performance of sprinters. It is suggested that the coaches in their training program should incorporate 30meter flying, 60meter run for its identical nature in sprinting qualities whereas 300 and 500m run included due to their specificity and simulation distances to develop the anaerobic glycolysis energy system which is prerequisite for 400m run.
