It is becoming an accepted practice for physical fitness testing to emphasize certain components, which includes body composition (ratio of leanness to fatness), cardiovascular efficiency, muscular strength and endurance, and flexibility of lower back and posterior thigh area. Current discussions of physical fitness are commonly set in muscular strength context. The hypothesis set in this study was that there will not be any significant difference among the North zone interuniversity Kho-Kho women players. The purpose of the study was to compare the of muscular strength (abdominal) of Kho-Kho women players teams who were in top four ranking in north zone inter-university kho-kho women championship 2019-20. The top ranking team of this tournament was Dr. Rammanohar Lohia Avadh University, Ayodhya, Kurukshetra University, Kurukshetra, Panjab University, Chandigarh and Lovely Professional University, Phagwara accordingly. The twelve players of each team were included making the sample size of forty eight players for this study. Abdominal muscular strength has been assessed through Sit-up test. The sit-up test was scored as the number of sit-ups performed within a period of one-minute. To test the hypotheses one-way analysis of variance (F-ratio) was adopted. In the present study, muscular strength was found significant thus least significant difference (L.S.D) test were applied for pair-wise comparison of the mean values. Level of
significance was set at 0.05. The result of the study indicate that Muscular Strength (Abdominal) was higher in Kurukshetra Uni., Kurukshetra followed by Dr. R.L.A.U., Ayodhya, Panjab Uni., Chandigarh and L.P.S., Phagwara.
