Dr. Geeta ThakurAbstract:
The purpose of this study was to compare the selected physiological variables between male Athlete and non athletes. 60 male subjects ( athletes: 30 and Non athletes: 30) age group of 18 to 25 years, randomly selected from different institutes affiliated to Punjabi University Patiala, Punjab, India. Vital capacity of athletes was measured by Spiro meter. Peak flow rate was measured with a peak flow meter. The between-group differences were assessed by using t-test. The level of p
<0.05 was considered significant. The t-test revealed that male non athletes had significantly higher vital capacity and Peak flow Rate (p
<0.05) than male athletes. Further investigations are needed on the above studied variables along with motor fitness variables to assess relationships among them and with performances in male athletes and non athletes.Pages: 19-20 | 1021 Views 29 DownloadsDownload Full Article:
