AUTHOR(S): Padam Dev Singh
ABSTRACT:
Objectives: The purpose of present study was to compare the physical variables of physical education students of Punjab and Jammu Kashmir states.
Methods: To obtain data for this study, the investigator had selected two hundred (N=200) subjects, out of which one hundred (N=100) from Punjab state and one hundred (n=100) from Jammu Kashmir state who were studying under the Department of Physical Education Punjabi University, Patiala (Punjab) and Department of Physical Education & Sports, University of Kashmir (J&K). The age of all subjects ranged from 21 to 28 years. According to their manuals. Keeping in view the limited facilities available to the investigator, the physical, variables selected for the study were; 50 meter dash (Speed); pull-ups (Arms and Shoulder girdle strength); bent knee sit-ups (abdominal strength); standing broad jump (explosive strength); shuttle run (agility); Cooper’s 12 minute run and walk (cardio-respiratory endurance); bridge-up test (spine flexibility); t-test was applied to determine the significance of difference and direction of difference in mean scores of variables between Punjab and Jammu Kashmir states. The level of significance was set at 0.05.
Results: The results revealed no significant difference between physical education students of Punjab and Jammu Kashmir states. The subjects belonging to the Punjab state are superior to subjects from J&K state in pull-ups (arms and shoulder girdle strength); bent knee sit-ups (abdominal strength); standing broad jump (explosive strength); shuttle run (agility); bridge up test (spine flexibility).No statistically significant difference was found in 50 meter dash (speed) and Cooper’s 12 minute run and walk (cardio-respiratory endurance) among both the groups.
