Correlation of balance, core endurance and power performance in male cricketers of different maturity statusAuthor(s):
Shanali Jain and Nipa ShahAbstract:
Cricketers have specific roles which include batting, wicket keeping, fielding and bowling. For better performance, knowledge of capacities and their relationship with maturational status is of utmost importance so that we can develop strategies at the adolescent age and impart proper training to them. 71 cricketers were included. Static balance was measured by Standing Stork balance test and dynamic balance by modified SEBT. For core muscle endurance, Sport specific endurance plank test was done, while power was evaluated with backward overhead medicine ball throw. The results
showed static balance had moderate correlations (p<
0.05) with core endurance in the whole group. Significant moderate correlations were found between static balance (eyes closed) and core endurance (p<
0.05) in Pre PHV group. It was concluded that static balance and core endurance were correlated among cricketers. But no correlation exists between dynamic balance, core endurance and power performance in cricketers of different maturity status.Pages: 146-149 | 217 Views 6 DownloadsDownload Full Article:
