RELATIONSHIP OF CORE STABILITY TO THE PERFORMANCE VARIABLES OF FEMALE KABADDI PLAYERS
Dr. Jaswant Singh Thakur and Dr. Sujay Bisht
To determine the relationship between stability and selected performance variables of senior female Kabaddi players. Twenty two national female Kabaddi Players (age: 23.3 ± 1.4, height: 162.4±4.7, and weight: 62.1±3.8) were completed performance and core stability testing. Leg explosive strength, agility, speed, maximum strength of lower limbs and upper limbs were tested as the performance variables in Kabaddi with vertical jump, 10X4 yard shuttle run, 50 yards dash, 1RM Squat and 1RM Bench press respectively. They were also subjected to McGill’s 4 tests for stability of core (muscular endurance for trunk flexor and extensor, and left and right bridge). Positive correlation (r) was found in case of core stability vs. vertical jump (0.44; p>0.05), core stability vs. squat (kg) (0.32; p<0.05), core stability vs. squat/kg (0.37; p<0.05), core stability vs. bench press (kg) (0.29; p<0.05) and core stability vs. bench press/kg (0.23; p<0.05). Negative correlation was observed in case of core stability vs. shuttle run (-0.51; p>0.05) and core stability vs.50 yards dash (-0.41; p<0.05). Coefficient of determination (r2) showed lower values. Present study indicates relationship between core stability and performance variables in some extent, so core should not be ignored during training program.
