Author(s): Rojina Azim, Nupur Sikdar and Dr. Asish Paul
Abstract:
This study compared the existing structural measures and endurance capacity among the school going girls of 12yrs old belonging to Hill and Plain areas. 100 girls were selected randomly from Paschim Medinipur considered in this study as plain area and 60 girls were randomly selected from Jalpaiguri district considered in this study as the Hill area. The measurements were the weight, standing height, sitting height, lower limb length and cardio respiratory endurance. All the anthropometric measures were taken ISAK approved apparatus and the endurance capacity was measured by 600 yards run. It was found from the study that in case of the weight no significant difference exist between the two groups but in case of standing height, sitting height, lower limb length and cardio respiratory endurance the difference found significantly. The height of the students of plain area were significantly greater than the students of the hill area. The sitting heights of the students of plain area were significantly greater than the students of the hill area. The Lower Limb Length of the students of plain area was significantly greater than the students of the hill area. In case of Cardio respiratory endurance, it was found that the endurance of the hill area people was significantly better than the people of the plain area.
