Physiological, Biochemical and Strength Profile of Indian Cyclists and Boxers - A Comparative Study
Mrinal Dhawan, Shweta Shenoy, Jaspal Singh Sandhu
Objectives: The purpose of this study was to assess and compare the physiological, strength and biochemical profile of Indian national cyclists and boxers. Methodology: 60 national level athletes (30 boxers and 30 cyclists) consented to participate in the study. Their physiological (VO2 max), biochemical (CK, MPO, hs-cRP), Isometric strength at the knee joint and anaerobic performance (average power and maximum height) were assessed. Results and Conclusion: The results indicated the Indian national cyclists had higher VO2 max (57.1 ml min 1kg-1 ) as compared to national boxers (51.13 ml min 1kg-1) whilst, the biochemical markers depicted more muscle damage in cyclists, making them prone to exercise induced muscle injuries.
Keywords: Exercise induced muscle damage, Cyclists, Boxers, Isometric muscle strength, VO2 max
