Biomechanical Analysis of Selected Holding Positions on Parallel Bar in Gymnastic

Y.S.Rajpoot | G. D. Ghai | Amritashish Bagchi

Abstract: The purpose of the study was to biomechanically analysis the three different holding positions (i. e. Handstand, Straddle L Hold and L Hold) on parallel bar in gymnastic. A total of 6 male university level subjects were selected (aged 19.661.63) from gymnastic match practice group of Laxshmibai National Institute of Physical Education by using consecutive sampling. The biomechanical and anthropometric variables included were angles at hip joint, stature, weight and BMI. Angles were determined by using dartfish software. Videography method was used to biomechanically analysis the selected moments. For measuring performance in each of the three different holding positions subjective evaluation was used. Descriptive statistics and correlation were used as a statistical technique for the present study. A descriptive profile was made by using EXCEL graphic functionality on selected parameters. In case of correlation, none of the biomechanical and anthropometric variables has exhibited significant relationship with the performance of subjects in any of the selected holding positions on parallel bar.
