Author(s): V Narayana Prabhu and Dr. K Sivakumar
The purpose of the study was to analysis of bone mineral density of different sports and games in university level players. To achieve the purpose of the study, one hundred and twenty men players were selected as subjects. The age, height and weight of the subjects ranged from 17 to 25 years, 162 to 175 centimetres and 56 to 70 kilograms respectively. The selected subjects were randomly assigned into four equal groups of 30 subjects each. Group I taken from badminton players, group II taken from football players, group III taken from swimmers and group IV taken from Non-sports men. The data collected from the four groups on selected dependent variables were statistically analysed to find out the significant difference if any, by applying the 4 x 3 two-way analysis of covariance (ANCOVA). Since four groups were involved, whenever the obtained ‘F’ ratio for adjusted post-test means was found to be significant, the Scheffe’s test was applied as post hoc test to determine the paired mean differences. Result of the study showing that significant difference exists among the sports wise players and also the diet wise on bone mineral density.
