Correlation between core muscle strength and hand-eye coordination in badminton playersAuthor(s):
Vidhi Rajani and Dr. Chintan SolankiAbstract:
Badminton players need to have certain physical characteristics such as balance, coordination, agility, muscle strength. They also need specific movement patterns such as twists, hops and swings. The core acts as a muscle corset stabilizing the body and spine both with and without limb movement. Weak core is thought to disrupt energy transfer, reducing athletic performance and increasing chance of damage to the muscle area. Eye-hand coordination is a critical visual motor function allowing goal-directed use of the arm, hand and fingers to create quick movement.
Method: 45 participants were selected based on the inclusion criteria using convenient sampling. Subjects were evaluated for core muscle strength using plank test. Participants were evaluated for hand-eye coordination using alternate wall toss test on the same day.
Result: Statistical analysis was done using Karl-Pearson Correlational analysis. Correlation coefficient r-value for plank test and alternate wall toss test has been recorded as 0.979 which is statistically highly significant at 5% level with linear association. It means both the variables are moving in the same directions at the time association with each other.
Conclusion: There is a strong positive correlation between core muscle strength and hand-eye coordination in badminton players. More the core muscle strength, more fine is the hand-eye coordination in badminton players.Pages: 512-519 | 66 Views 25 DownloadsDownload Full Article:
