Abstract:
Background: Hand grip strength and corrected mid upper arm muscle area, mid upper arm fat area, tricep skin fold thickness has been an indicator for determining strength. Objectives: The purpose of study was to found out for correlation of corrected mid upper arm muscle area, mid upper arm fat area, tricep skin fold thickness with hand grip strength in cricket players. Material and Methods : Total 30 healthy cricket (15-25 years), from district sport academy, regularly practicing from last 3 years at university level and who don’t have any abnormality of upper arm or any neurological problem, history of fracture of hand were included. Measurement of hand grip strength with help of Sahens hand grip digital dynamometer was done. Mean of three reading was taken as final reading. Corrected Mid upper arm muscle area calculated by standard formula, [{Mid upper arm circumference- (π x TSF/10)} 2-10] /4π. Mid Upper Arm Circumference measured by measuring tape. Tricep skin fold thickness is measured by harpendence calliper. Mid upper arm fat area calculated by standard formula, [Mid upper arm area- mid upper arm muscle area] Pearson correlation coefficient established a correlation of corrected mid upper arm muscle area, tricep skin fold thickness with hand grip strength. Result: It was found that, statistically there was highly significant positive correlation observed between hand grip strength with corrected mid upper arm muscle area. It was also found that, there was positive correlation observed between hand grip strength with mid upper arm fat area and highly significant negative correlation between hand grip strength with tricep skin fold thickness in cricket players. Conclusion: Proper training for maintaining mid upper arm muscle area, mid upper arm fat area, tricep skin fold thickness and hand grip strength will increase in hand grip strength. It will further lead to better strength and performance in cricket activities like bowling, fielding etc.
