Comparative study on selected anthropometric measurements among Punjab and Haryana inter-University female Kabaddi players


Author(s): Jaskirt Singh and Dr. Arun Kumar

Abstract:
The purpose of the study was to Analyse Anthropometric Measurements among Punjab and Haryana Inter-University Female Kabaddi Players. Firstly, regarding linear measurements, Punjab kabaddi players exhibited shorter height, lower weight. Shorter arm and leg lengths compared to their counterparts from Haryana. These differences indicate potential variations in overall body size and proportionality between the two groups, which could influence performance attributes such as speed, agility and power. Secondly, the analysis of body circumferences revealed notable distinctions, particularly in waist and abdominal circumferences. Punjab players tended to have larger waist and abdominal circumferences than Haryana players, suggesting differences in central adiposity and body fat distribution. These variations could have implications for metabolic health, injury risk, and overall athletic performance. While chest and hip circumferences did not show significant differences between Punjab and Haryana players, the observed discrepancies in waist and abdominal circumferences underscore the importance of considering regional variations in body composition among kabaddi players. Moreover, the analysis of skinfold thickness revealed significant differences between the two groups, with Punjab players generally exhibiting thicker skinfold measurements compared to Haryana players. These findings suggest variations in subcutaneous fat distribution and body composition profiles, which could influence factors such as agility, endurance, and susceptibility to injuries.
