Vileep K S | N D Virupaksha [2]


Abstract: Introduction Sports reflects values found in our everyday lives and even in our entire society. Women have been excluded from certain areas of significant participation in various aspects of living and this is also true for her involvement in sports and other motor activities. There is perhaps no domain where myths, attitudes and beliefs remain. So persistent as in the world of sports. There are myths related to the female motor and psychological females monthly cycle, pregnancy, the females motor and psychological limits of performance capacity etcetera. Most of these beliefs are rooted in long socio-cultural attitudes, however, their validity has not been demonstrated scientifically, social approval is relative. There are nations which activity opposite any competitive efforts for women. Other nations urge their women to enter the Olympics, while still others merely permit them to do so. However, even today some forms of competitions are officially unacceptable for women as indicated by their exclusion from Olympic level competition. Purpose The purpose of the study was to find out the relationship of pulse rate with selected motor fitness variable among field hockey players. Methodology The purpose of the present investigation was to find out the relationship of vital capacity with motor fitness of 60 field hockey players in the age group of 19 to 28 years, of different universities were measured for pulse rate by using heart rate monitor and the raw score of pulse rate of subjects measured would represent the data for the investigation and motor fitness variable strength, endurance, speed, agility, flexibility measured the test. Results The statistical analysis shows coefficient of correlation in relationship of pulse with selected motor fitness variable among field hockey players. Conclusion In view of the finding and limitation of the study, motor fitness variable strength, endurance, speed, agility and flexibility are correlated with pulse rate.
