Author(s): V Vikashpaul and Tahir Ramzan Bhat
The purpose of this study was to determine the relationship of selected anthropometric variables such as Leg length, Arm length, sitting height, Arm girth, chest girth, weight. Twenty male students of Lakshmi Bai National Institute of Physical Education Gwalior were selected as subject. The subjects were residing in the Institute hostel. All the subject had their require schedule of training in physical education activities as per the performance of the Institute. For the establishment of relationship of dependent and independent variables the following tests were employed. Standing height, sitting height, chest girth, arm girth, arm length leg length, standing broad jump measured in centimeters, weight were measured in kilograms. Product movement correlation method was used to compute coefficient of correlation. The findings of the study revealed that no significant relationship were found between performance of 100 meters sprint &Standing height (r=-.65), sitting height (r=-.80), weight (r=-.75), chest girth (r=-.72), arm girth (r=-.83), leg length, (r=-.88) arm length, (r=-.53). The findings of the study revealed that no significant relationship were found between performance of 400 meters sprint &Standing height (r=-.79), sitting height (r=-.62), weight (r=-.76), chest girth (r=-.49), arm girth (r=-.68), leg length (r=-.81), arm length (r=-.75).
