This study was intended to assess the transformation on selected Morphophysiological parameters of RDT hockey academy players with a yearlong adaptation to supervised systematic training in the academy. For this purpose a group of 27 male hockey player from RDT hockey academy volunteered to participate in the study. The percent body fat, lean body mass and aerobic capacity was measured as criterion variables. The testing of selected variables took place at the beginning of competitive phases of training during two periodized training year, with a span of one-year between initial and final data collection. The bicycle ergometer, weighing machine and skinfold caliper were used to measure criterion variables adopting standardized procedures. The data thus collected on selected criterion variables was subjected to statistical analysis. The analysis of data revealed that the aerobic capacity of RDT hockey academy players significantly improves (p < 0.05), however percent body fat and lean body mass found to be unchanged considerably.Pages: 205-206 | 1233 Views 10 DownloadsDownload Full Article:
