Author(s): Showkat Ahmad Dar

Abstract: The study aimed to Compare arm strength, leg strength and cardio respiratory endurance of inter collegiate volleyball and handball players of Nagpur university. A total of forty (40) subjects, out of which twenty (20) as volleyball and twenty (20) as handball players of inter college level of Nagpur University and all of them were randomly selected for the study through a special sampling technique called as Simple random Sampling. The age of the subjects ranged between 18-27 years. To analyze the arm strength, leg strength and cardio respiratory endurance of both these groups i.e volleyball and handball players the following tests were used. Pull ups for measuring arm strength, standing broad jump for measuring leg strength and YMCA 3-minute step test for measuring cardio respiratory endurance. The analysis of data was done by using statistical technique ‘t’- test for finding the significance difference of arm strength, leg strength and cardio respiratory endurance of volleyball and handball players and the level of significance was set at 0.05 levels (p<0.05). The findings means and standard deviation of selected physical variables of college level players of volleyball viz. arm strength is (7.8 ± 1.91) and leg strength is (2.12 ± 0.14) and cardio respiratory endurance (103 ± 8.42) and the findings means and standard deviation of selected physical variables of college level players of handball viz. arm strength is (8.75 ± 2.41) and leg strength is (2.17 ± 0.21) and cardio respiratory endurance is (94.35 ± 8.85). Hence both the volleyball and handball players were equal in arm and leg strength but unequal in cardio respiratory endurance. Handball players were better in cardio respiratory endurance as compared to volleyball players
