A comparative analysis on physical and physiological parameters of inter-collegiate kabaddi and kho-kho playersAuthor(s):
A Kabaddi and Kho-Kho game requires the specific fitness with reference to vital capacity, strength, speed, flexibility and co-ordination. Fitness training equips the sports person to face the physical and physiological challenges that come his way in his competitive sports career. Specific physiological and physical fitness characteristics enable the player to perform the unusual movements required by the concerned sport. Physiological and physical fitness characteristics measurement plays an important role on the successful Kabaddi and Kho-Kho performances. These parameters further help to predict talents and finance on the potentially of best athletes for each sport.
The main purpose of this study is to compare selected physical and physiological variables of inter-collegiate Kabaddi and Kho-Kho players. The sample consisted of fifty male inter-collegiate Kabaddi and Kho-Kho players from Bangalore University by simple random sampling method. The selected physical fitness variables are agility, strength and flexibility and physiological variables are systolic and diastolic pressure, hemoglobin (Hb %) and resting pulse rate. The results of t-ratio of it showed significant difference in some physical fitness and physiological parameters of inter-collegiate Kabaddi and Kho-Kho players. In physiological parameters diastolic pressure showed significant difference between Kabaddi and Kho-Kho players. The diastolic pressure of inter-collegiate Kho-Kho players are more than Kabaddi inter-collegiate players, which may be due to nature of game and movement which demand more blood volume with greater diastolic pressure but systolic pressure, hemoglobin (Hb%) and resting pulse rate expressed insignificant difference between inter-collegiate Kabaddi and Kho-Kho players. The research finding of some physical fitness parameters indicated significant difference between inter-collegiate Kabaddi and Kho-Kho players. The agility and explosive strength expressed significant difference. The agility of inter-collegiate Kabaddi players more than Kho-Kho players, which due to quick and speedy movement in catching and raid. The explosive strength of inter-collegiate Kho-Kho players is higher than Kabaddi players but Flexibility showed insignificant difference between Kabaddi and Kho-Kho players.
