Relationship of Selected Physical Variables with the Performance of Badminton Players.
This study was undertaken to find the relationship of arm strength, leg strength, agility and flexibility with the performance of Badminton Player. 20 Badminton Player were selected as a subject for the study from Jiwaji University and Lakshmibai National Institute of Physical Education, Gwalior India.For estimating arm strength, leg strength, agility, flexibility and badminton performance the following tests were employed for arm strength, the Rogers formula was employed in which height was measured in inches, weight in kilograms and push-ups, pull-ups in numbers, leg strength in kilograms, agility (shuttle run 40 yards) in seconds flexibility i.e. spine flexibility. Modified sit and reach test in inches. For shoulder-wrist flexibility shoulder and wrist elevation test in inches and the badminton performance was graded by a panel of experts on the basis of their skills, techniques and match result.
Zero order correlation was used to compute correlation between badminton performance and selected variables i.e. arm strength, leg strength, agility and flexibility and findings reveals that shoulder wrist flexibility and agility were found significant at 0.05 level of confidence.
The finding indicates that shoulder – wrist flexibility and agility of the subjects were important variables for better performance in Badminton.Write your abstract here.
