AbstractBackground: Handgrip strength is a physiological variable affecting a number of variables including age, sex and size, weight, height, strength of muscle, exhaustion, daytime, age and diet, movement constraints and pain. Clear relation between the strength of the handgrip of different anthropometric traits.
Aims and Objectives: To Correlation of various anthropometric parameters and dominant handgrip in cricket and football players.
Material and Methods: The present research was performed in the Sports Physiology Laboratory of the Department of Physiology. The duration of the study was from December 2012 to November 2014. A test research is conducted to conduct a comparative study of anthropometric parameters and dominant handgrip strength in cricket and football players.
Results: There is a positive correlation between weight, height, MUAC, BMI, percent body fat, percent lean body weight, mid-upper arm diameter, mid-upper arm area, corrected mid-upper arm muscle area, mid-upper arm fat area with dominant handgrip strength for Cricket and Football players. There is a negative correlation between arm fat index, tricep skin thickness, and dominant handgrip strength in cricket and football players.
Conclusion: It can be concluded that handgrip strength showed a strong correlation with anthropometric measurements (height, weight, percent of lean body mass, mid-upper arm circumference, mid-upper arm area, corrected mid-upper arm muscle area). The dominant force of the handgrip can be predicted using these anthropometric parameters.
