The purpose of this study was to find out the difference of Resting Pulse Rate, Expiratory Peak Flow and Vital Capacity between Inter-College and Inter-University Handball Players.
Subjects: To obtain data, the investigators had selected Sixty four (N=64) male Inter-College and Inter-University level handball players to act as subjects. They were divided into two groups; Forty eight (N1=48) Inter-College level and Sixteen (N2=16) Inter-University level. All the subjects, after having been informed about the objective and protocol of the study, gave their consent and volunteered to participate in this study.
Variables: For the purpose of this investigation Resting Pulse Rate, Expiratory Peak Flow and Vital Capacity were measured.
Statistical Analysis: The Statistical Package for the Social Sciences (SPSS) version 14.0 was used for all analyses. The differences in the mean of each group for selected variable were tested for the significance of difference by an independent samples t-test. For testing the hypotheses, the level of significance was set at 0.05.
Results: Resting Pulse Rate:- The t-value is 3.89023. The p-value is .000124. The result is significant at p< .05., Expiratory Peak Flow:- The t-value is 9.67928. The p-value is < .00001. The result is significant at p< .05 and Vital Capacity:- The t-value is 3.39619. The p-value is .000599. The result is significant at p< .05.
