Abstract:
The study aimed to Compare Study of Fat Percentage And Muscle Mass of College Students of hilly and Plain Area of Kashmir division A total of Sixty (60) subjects, out of which thirty (30) were selected from plain and thirty (30) from hilly areas of Kashmir division and all of them were randomly selected for the study through a special sampling technique called as Simple random Sampling. The age of the subjects ranged between 18-21 years. To analyze the Fat Percentage And Muscle Mass of College Students of both the groups the following tests or equipments were used. Skin fold caliper for measuring Fat Percentage. Weighing machine for measuring weight and then fat percentage of each individual subject was subtracted from their actual weight to get the muscle mass of the subjects. The analysis of data was done by using statistical technique ‘t’- test for finding the significance difference of Fat Percentage And Muscle Mass of College Students of hilly and Plain Area of Kashmir division and the level of significance was set at 0.05 levels (p<0.05). The findings means and standard deviation of selected physical variables of college students from plain areas viz. Fat Percentage is ( 9.96 ± 2.28 ) and Muscle Mass is( 57.0 ± 1.51) and The findings means and standard deviation of selected physical variables of college students from plain areas viz. Fat Percentage is (7.23 ± 3.19) and Muscle Mass is(59.87 ± 3.76). Hence it is clear that the students from plain areas are fatty and with least muscle mass as compared to that of living in hilly areas the reason behind all this might be the tracking habit of people living in hilly areas as these areas have good facilities of transport so people in hilly areas consume extra energy as compared to plain areas.
