Abstract
The aim of this paper was to compare high and low achievers on Body Composition and Somatotype of Handball players from RTM Nagpur University, Nagpur, Maharashtra. To achieve this purpose, a total of 29 boys from RTM Nagpur University, Nagpur, were considered. These players were classified into two group’s namely high achievers (17) and low achievers (12), on the basis of level of participation in tournaments. This data was collected during the academic year 2018-19. The anthropometric measures height, weight, % BF was measured initially for all the subjects. The criterion variables chosen for this study were body composition which was measured by body fat % is an easy method of discovering correct body weight and composition. Beneath the skin is a layer of subcutaneous fat, and the % of total body fat can be measured by taking the 'skinfold' at selected points on the body with a pair of calipers. This test only requires four measurements. And an anthrop meter for measuring the height, a skin fold caliper, a small sliding caliper for the breadths and a flexible steel or fiber glass tape for the girths. ANOVA of unequal sample was employed to know the difference between high and low achievers handball players. The percent body fat content is greater in low achievers will act as a hindrance in their performance. The high achievers (40.00) LBM is greater than low achievers (35.99).The somatotype of high and low achievers is mesomorphic ectomorph because ectomorphy is dominant, with mesomorph second in dominance.
