AbstractBackground: Handgrip strength is a reliable predictor of muscular strength and proper hand functioning.
Aims and Objectives: To Correlation of various anthropometric parameters and nondominant handgrip in cricket and football players.
Material and Methods: The present study was carried out in the sports physiology laboratory of the department of physiology Duration of the study from December 2012 to November 2014. A test study is undertaken to do a comparative study of anthropometric parameters and nondominant handgrip strength in cricket and football players.
Results: There is a positive correlation between weight, height, MUAC, BMI, % of body fat, % of lean body mass, mid-upper arm circumference, mid-upper arm area, corrected mid-upper arm muscle area, mid-upper arm fat area with nondominant handgrip strength in Cricket and Football players. There is a negative correlation between arm fat indexes, tricep skinfold thickness with nondominant handgrip strength in cricket and Football players.
Conclusion: It may be concluded that nondominant handgrip strength had strong positive correlations with all the anthropometric parameters.
