The aim of this study was primarily to investigate the body composition parameter in handball players and basketball university players of LNIPE Gwalior. 15 handball and 15 basketball players have taken in this study. The body composition analyser machine (bioelectrical impedance analyser) measures weight, BMI (body mass index), FFM (fat free mass), metabolic age, BMR (basic metabolism rate), TBW (Total bone weight) and visceral fat rating. for the analysis of data independent “t” test was employed with level of significance 0.05.the result of study shown insignificant difference in weight, BMI, FFM, metabolic age, BMR, TBW and visceral fat rating.
