Abstract:
Researcher studied the comparative study of flexibility, agility, explosive strength and BMI of basketball and handball players. The purpose of the study is to compare the flexibility, agility, Explosive Strength and BMI of Basketball and Handball Players. Researcher hypothesized that, there might be significant differences in flexibility, agility, Explosive Strength and BMI of Basketball and Handball Players. The study was delimited to 15 Basketball and 15 Handball players. The study was also delimited to inter-collegiate level players S.G.B.A.U., Amravati. The study was delimited to the male students only. The age of the subjects ranged between 18-25 years. The present study was delimited to flexibility, agility, Explosive Strength and BMI variables only. 15 Basketball and 15 Handball male players were selected as subjects. The subjects selected for the study was from those who represented inter-collegiate tournaments and inter-university trials of S.G.B.A.U., Amravati by using simple random sampling method. For collecting data the researcher administrated Sit and Reach test was used for flexibility and measured in centimeters. Shuttle run test was used to check the agility and measured in seconds. Standing Broad Jump was used for leg strength and measured in inches. Medicine Ball Throw was used for shoulder strength and measured in foots. Weighing machine used for Body weight was recorded in kilogram and Standiometer used for standing height and recorded in centimeters. To find out the significant difference’t’ test was employed on each variable independently. To test the hypothesis, the level of significance was set at 0.05 level of confidence. Basketball and Handball players having same flexibility. Handball players having good agility than the Basketball players. Basketball players having good leg strength than the Handball players.
