Anthropometry is the science of measuring the size and proportions of the human body 'anthropometry' means the measurement of man, whether living or dead, and consists primarily in the measurement of the dimensions of the body. Anthropometry represents the typical and traditional tool of human biology, physical, anthropometry and axiology. Recently it has taken a strong bonded relationship with physical education and sports. Anthropometric measurement was the first type of testing used in physical education in the word fifty separate measurements were recommended by the American association for the advancement of physical education. In physiology we learn how our organs, systems, tissues, cells, and molecules with in cell work and how their functions are put together to maintain our internal environment. Physiology is the science dealing with the study of human body function. Exercise physiology is the study of how our body's structure and functions are changed as a result of exercise. Sports physiology is derived from exercise physiology to training the athlete and enhancing the athlete's sports performance. Bodybuilding is one of the most popular games in the world. Participants of all ages have discovered Body builder to be fun. competitive educational and recreational and fitness oriented individual skill such as shooting, passing, and rebounding along with offensive and defensive team work and prerequisites for successful participation in the sports. To achieve to purpose of the study 10 subjects for each namely Body builder and Weight lifter from Pathanamthitta district were selected as subjects. The subject ranged from 55kg to 60kg. The criterion variables selected for this study was anthropometrical between district level Weight lifter and Bodybuilder subjects. The subjects who were participated in the district level tournaments were selected as subjects. The anthropometrical variables Height, weight, arm girth, forearm girth, thigh girth and calf girth were selected as dependent variables. The selected criterion variables for the study were assessed by the Height, weight, arm girth, forearm girth, thigh girth and calf girth following standardized test item: were assessed by measuring tape and the unit of measurements are in centimeters.. The sample present study have been delimited to the twenty district level Weight lifter and Body builder as subjects. Subjects were selected on the basis of the random sampling.
