Physiological variables as determinant of national level judokas
AUTHOR(S): Arvind Singh Rana and Dr. Madan Singh Rathor
The purpose of the study was to determine the physiological variables as determinants of judokas at national level. The study was delimited to 50 national level male judo players between the age group of 18-27 years. The study was further delimited to the following variables, Physiological variables: Fat Percentage, Aerobic Capacity, Anaerobic Capacity and Vital Capacity. After selecting the following variables, the data were collected with the help of sophisticated instruments under the expert’s supervision. The instruments like, stop watch, and score sheets were used to measure the physical variables. Bio-electric impedance analyzer, Spiro meter, score sheets and stop watch were used to measure the physiological variables of the subjects. For the purpose of data analysis, researcher has used the statistical software known as SPSS version 20 and to find out the variables which are responsible for the performance of the judokas factor analysis was used to understand the structure of variables. The mean and standard deviation of all the variables were found for the selected test i.e. Fat percentage (13.94 + 2.51), Aerobic capacity test (2715.68 + 208.46), Anaerobic capacity test (4.53 + 0.35), Vital capacity test (5.78 + 0.84), After applying factor analysis the test items contributing most in particular factors were selected and four factors were derived with their highest factor loading of the test items in each factor. Thus, the factor together explained 72.77% of the total variance of the model. The two factors were Aerobic capacity confidence with factor loading 0.778, and Anaerobic Capacity confidence with factor loading 0.926. Hence from the above findings we can conclude that the four factors extracted can be considered as the determinants of judokas performance at national level.
