Information about age (year) and economic status was collected. Physical parameters- stature and weight was measured and with the help of those measurements Body Mass Index (BMI) was calculated. Systolic and diastolic pressure was also collected. And maximum aerobic capacity (VO2max) and physical fitness index was measured for understanding fitness level of individual. Motor ability status of the study participants was assessed in terms of Kraus-Weber Tests, lower limb endurance was assessed by sit-and-stand test, the vertical jump height and the standard broad jump height test.
