AUTHOR(S): Dr. Gulbahar Khan
The study investigated the difference between forward and defender male handball players related to Anthropometric measurements and Body Composition. The investigation was conducted on 25 forward and 25 defender male handball players from University of Bilaspur, Bilaspur (CG). The total handball players were selected through random sampling technique. Anthropometric measurements were measured according to Weiner and Laurie (1969) procedure by using standardized tools. Body Composition was calculated by using the formulae of Matiegka (1921) and t test was used to find out significance difference between both groups. The Anthropometric results showed forwards were taller as compared to defenders. Defenders have greater diameters and more circumferences but in case of skin folds, forwards have possessed greater supra illiac skin folds as compared to defenders. In the case of body composition defenders possessed greater bone mass and fat percentage as compared to forwards, where as forward possess greater muscle mass as compare to defenders handball players.
