Abstract

The main purpose of this study will be to compare selected physical and physiological variables of kabaddi and kho-kho inter-varsity Players. The sample consisted of fifty male kabaddi and kho-kho central zone inter-varsity Players by simple random sampling method. The selected physical fitness variables are agility, strength and flexibility and physiological variables are systolic and diastolic pressure, hemoglobin (Hb %) and resting pulse rate. The results of t-ratio of it showed significant difference in some physical fitness and physiological parameters of kabaddi and kho-kho intervarsity players. In physiological parameters diastolic pressure showed significant difference between kabaddi and kho-kho players. The diastolic pressure of kho-kho intervarsity players more than kabaddi intervarsity players, which may be due to nature of game and movement which demand more blood volume with greater diastolic pressure but systolic pressure, haemoglobin (Hb%) and resting pulse rate expressed insignificant difference between kabaddi and kho-kho intervarsity players. The research finding of some physical fitness parameters indicated significant difference between kabaddi and kho-kho intervarsity players. The agility and explosive strength expressed significant difference. The agility of kabaddi intervarsity players more than kho-kho players, which due to quick and speedy movement in catching and raid. The explosive strength of kho-kho players higher than kabaddi intervarsity players but Flexibility showed insignificant difference between kabaddi and kho-kho players.
