Anthropometric characteristics contributing to success at different levelAuthor(s):
Dr. Gaurav Pant and Sachin ParsekarAbstract:
The study is to camp are the Anthropometrics characteristics, body composition and physical fitness parameters of state level cricketers and national level cricketers. The significance was set as 0.05 level and tabulated ‘t’ value is 1.686. anthropometrics characteristics was measured by conducting test which shows there is significant difference in standing height (2.036>1.686), weight (2.024>1.686), leg length (2.058>1.686), arm length (2.026>1686), calf girths(2.024>1.686), upper arm girths (2.045>1.686), thigh girths (2.028>1.686).
Body composition is measured and it also shows significant difference in triceps skinfold thickness (2.024>1.686). biceps skinfold thickness (2.030>1.686), sub-scapula skinfold thickness (2.024>1.686). Physical fitness parameter speed, strength, agility and flexibility was tested by conducting 50 meter dash (2.028>1.686), strength (2.032>1.686), agility (2.026>1.686), flexibility (2.032>1.686) By conducting study on 40 subjects i.e 20 state level cricketers and 20 national level cricketers it is observed that there is significant difference in all 14 variables. National level cricketers has better anthropometrics characteristics and physical fitness level than state level cricketers. Hence anthropometrics characteristics also enhance performance level in cricket. Pages: 21-23 | 536 Views 26 DownloadsDownload Full Article:
