The purpose of the study was to find out the relationship of leg strength with different anthropometric parameters. A total of 50 volleyball players from different colleges of Amravati district, Maharashtra were selected randomly as subject for the present study. The age of the subjects was from 18 to 20 years. Explosive leg strength was measured by standing broad jump. Body weight, body height, Leg length, ankle diameter, thigh circumference and calf circumference were measured by steel tape. Mean and Standard Deviation were used as descriptive statistics for each variables. For the purpose of investigation of the relationship between explosive leg strength with selected anthropometric variables, Coefficient of Correlation (r-value) was calculated using Pearson’s Product Correlation Method. The level of Significance was considered for the study was only 0.05 level. Result: Significant relationships were found between leg strength in Volleyball players with body height, leg length, ankle diameter, thigh circumference and calf circumference it was the component of anthropometric and it was positively statistically significant.Pages: 95-97 | 825 Views 13 DownloadsDownload Full Article:
