AUTHOR(S): Dr. Thingnam Nandalal Singh
ABSTRACT:
The objective of the study was to compare the body composition (percentage of body fat, lean body mass and total body fat) among state level male football, volleyball and handball players of Manipur. It was hypothesized that there might be no significant difference among state level football, volleyball and handball players on the variable of body composition (percentage of body fat, lean body mass and total body fat). A group of one hundred and fifty (N=150) male players (football=50, volleyball=50 and handball=50) were selected for this study. The age of the subjects were ranged from 17 to 25 years. Body composition was assessed by taking the skinfold measurement at four sites namely biceps, triceps, subscapular and suprailiac (Durnin JVGA Womersley J. 1974). To compare the mean differences among state level male football, volleyball and handball players, Analysis of Variance (ANOVA) test was computed with the help of SPSS Software. The level of significance chosen was.05. The results showed that there were significant differences obtained on the variables of percentage of body fat and lean body mass (LBM) among state level football, volleyball and handball players of Manipur.
