Analysis of pulmonary variables among different topography University athletes
AUTHOR(S): Dr. MS Muthuramalingam and Dr. V Gopinath
The present study aims to investigate the pulmonary functions of different topography Indian university athletes. To achieve the purpose of the study 160 male athletes from four regions of India such as South, North, East and West consist of 10 athletes in each category like sprinters, middle distance runners, jumpers and throwers from different topography namely plain, hills and coastal athletes selected at random. The VO2MAX and breath holding time were selected as pulmonary variables and the selected variables are tested by using Harvard step test and Hold the breath in a minute. The collected data on dependent variables statistically tested by using 4X4 factorial design to find the main and interaction effects. The scheffs post hoc test used to find the paired mean difference, when the main and interaction effects found significant. The level of significance was fixed at 0.05. The results on VO2MAX on factor A (Different Athletes) and factor B (Different Region) significant with middle distance runners and sprinters, jumpers, throwers. The results of breath holding time on factor A (Different Athletes) and factor B (Different Region) found significant. The interaction effect on selected dependent variables shows significant. The study concluded that the VO2MAX ¬similar among different category athletes whereas the same was differ at topography. The breath holding time varies on different category athletes and topography too.
