Comparison of aerobic and anaerobic efficiency between handball and basketball players


Author(s): Laishram Thambal Singh, Oinam Bhagat and Soubam Vinaykumar Singh

Abstract: Background: The Basketball and handball games are considered among the fastest games, which possess the high aerobic and anaerobic efficiencies. In the training of handball and basketball, these factors are emphasized to improve as well as to achieve the high skill performance too.
Objective: The objective of this study was to investigate the significant differences of aerobic and anaerobic efficiency between the handball and basketball players.
Hypothesis: It was hypothesized that there might be significant differences of aerobic and anaerobic efficiency between handball and basketball players.
Methods: Twenty (20) players from each handball and basketball games between 18 to 25 years of age participated at least Inter-varsity level purposively selected. The data pertaining to this study were collected by administering Cooper’s 12 minutes Run/Walk test for aerobic efficiency and RAST test for anaerobic efficiency. To determine the significant difference between handball and basketball players independent t-test was employed and tested at 0.05 level of confidence.
Results: Significant difference was found between the two games in case of aerobic efficiency as the obtained t=3.64 > t=2.025 (tabulated) at 0.05 level of confidence. However, no significant difference was found between the two games in case of anaerobic efficiency as the obtained t=1.27 ˂ t=2.025 at 0.05 level of confidence.
Conclusion: Among the handball and basketball players there was the significant difference in case of aerobic efficiency, whereas, no significant difference was found on anaerobic efficiency between handball and basketball players.
