Anthropometric characteristics among compound, Indian round and recurve archers
Author(s): Ritika, Sahil Preet Bedi and Kiran
The present study aims at evaluating the anthropometric characteristics of the university level archers and association of these parameters with performance of archers also assessed. A total 30 university level archers (n= 30; 13 compound, 13 Indian round, 4 recurve) were selected as subjects. The height, weight, body lengths, diameters, circumferences and skinfold thicknesses were measured of the subjects. From these variables, the body composition components were calculated. The one-way ANOVA revealed that there were significant differences in body mass index (p< 0.05), upper arm length (p< 0.05), upper arm circumference (p< 0.05), percent body fat (p< 0.05) and total body fat (p< 0.05) among the compound, Indian round and recurve archers. The correlation analysis showed that the anthropometric characteristics did not show any association with the performance among the compound, Indian round and recurve group archers.
