Author(s): Dr. Brij Bhushan Yadav
The present study was focused to assess the level of Anthropometric Characteristics between Power Lifters and Weightlifters. For the purpose of the present study, forty (N=40) male inter-college Power Lifters and Weightlifters from D.A.V College, Amritsar between the age group of 18-25 years were selected as subjects. The subjects were purposively assigned into two groups: Group-A: Power Lifters (N1=20) and Group-B: Weightlifters (N2=20). All the subjects were informed about the objective and protocol of the study. Student’s t-test for independent data was used to determine the significant differences between Power Lifters and Weightlifters; unpaired t-test was employed for data analyses. To test the hypothesis, the level of significance was set at 0.05. It is concluded from the above findings that significant differences were found between Power Lifters and Weightlifters with regard to the variable Anthropometric Characteristics. It has been observed from the above results that statistically significant differences (P<0.05) were found between Power Lifters and Weightlifters. The Power Lifters have demonstrated significantly better on the sub-variables; Lower leg length and Arm length than the Weightlifters. However, insignificant differences (P>0.05) were found with regard to the sub-variables; Leg length, Upper Leg length, Upper arm length, Lower arm length and Calf girth.
