A comparison of selected physiological variables between male athletes and non-athletes


Author(s): Dr. Vikrant Ramchandra Wankhade

Abstract: The main purpose of this study was to compare selected physiological variables of athletes and non-athletes. The allied objectives of the study are as follows: 1) To compare the blood pressure of athletes and non-athletes, 2) To compare the pulse rate of athletes and non-athletes, 3) To compare the exhale capacity of athletes and non-athletes, 4) To compare the Vo2 Max of athletes and non-athletes. For the present study subjects were selected from male athletes and non-athletes of Amravati district. Forty subjects were selected for the collection of data which include 20 subject athletes and 20 from non-athletes of Amravati District. The subjects were selected by simple random sampling method. The various equipments used for collection of data are as under: Blood Pressure: It was measured by Sphygmomanometer, Pulse Rate: Digital Stop watch was used to measure the pulse rate. Exhale Capacity: It was measured by Peak Flow Meter Vo2 Max: It was measured by modified Queens’s college step test. ‘t’ test was applied for the statistical treatment in the Microsoft Excel 2007. The statistical analysis and interpretation was done on the basis of data collection. The data was analyzed and interpreted by using ‘t’ test. The level of significance was kept at 0.05, to testing the hypothesis. Result: There was insignificant difference in systolic and diastolic blood pressure between the athletes and non-athletes and there was significant difference in pulse rate exhale capacity and Vo2 Max between the athletes and non-athletes.
