Correlation of lower quarter Y balance test with agility T test and RAST in collegiate athletes

AUTHOR(S): Dr. Sneha Sailor, Dr. Khushboo Valodwala and Dr. Nidhi Bhalani
ABSTRACT:
Background: Dynamic balance, agility, anaerobic power and capacity, recreation time all are skill-related component of physical fitness which requires in sports like handball, soccer, basketball, cricket, tennis. There are various types of tests to assess these entire components. The purpose of this investigation is to examine correlation of LQYBT with T test and RAST as a component of leg power, leg speed, dynamic balance and agility. Here we used LQYBT, T test and RAST to assess dynamic balance, agility, and anaerobic power and capacity respectively.
Aim of the study: The aim of this study is to find out correlation of YBT with agility T test and RAST in collegiate athletes
Materials and Methods: 59 recreational collegiate athletes of different sports (soccer, handball, basketball, cricket, and hockey) participated in this research. Their mean age was 20.483 years. All participates has performed YBT, T test, and RAST. Dynamic balance, agility, and anaerobic power and capacity are assessed by LQYBT, T test and RAST respectively. Each participant will perform four test trials in which first two trials stands for familiarization and last two stands for statistical analyses. In which dynamic balance is measured by distance and other two component id measured by time. In T test, less time indicates greater agility. Pearson correlation is used to find correlation of YBT with T test and RAST.
Results: Present study shows positive correlation of YBT (RT) and RAST with the Pearson co-efficient of (r= 0.406). Positive correlation found between YBT (RT) and T test with the correlation co-efficient of (r= 0.375). Positive correlation fond between YBT (LT) and RAST with coefficient value r = 0.480 and positive correlation found between YBT (LT) and T test with coefficient value r = 0.303.
Conclusion: Investigation indicates that there is a positive correlation between YBT and RAST and also find positive correlation between YBT and T-test. So that YBT, agility T-test and RAST are the reliable tests to assess the dynamic balance, agility and anaerobic power and capacity.
