The purpose of the study was to find out the comparative analysis of Physiological Variables (Peak Flow Rate, Pulse Rate and Blood Pressure) between athletes and non-athletes. The study has been conducted on 120 students (males and females) which were divided into four groups with 30 students in each group. The subjects were students of Panjab University, Chandigarh. The age of the subjects ranged between 20-25 years. The study was restricted to only physiological variables which were Peak Flow Rate, Pulse Rate and Blood Pressure. The data was collected through Peak Flow Meter for Peak Flow Rate, Automatic Digital Blood Pressure Monitor for Blood Pressure and for Pulse Rate with the help of stopwatch. To find out significant difference among the group independent ‘t’-test was used with the help of SPSS Software. The level significance chosen was 0.05. After the analysis, it was revealed that there were significant differences obtained on peak flow, pulse rate and diastolic blood pressure between male athletes and non-athletes and also between female athletes and non-athletes of Panjab University Campus. No significant differences were found on systolic blood pressure between male athletes and non-athletes and also between female athletes and non-athletes. Both male and female athletes of Panjab University Campus performed significantly better on peak flow, pulse rate and diastolic blood pressure than their counterparts.
