Proportionality of Anthropometric and Physical Fitness Performance on Youth Aerobic Capacity Model
International Journal of Academic Research in Business and Social Sciences
Oxygen consumption is linked to the overall fitness performance and all the causes of the mortality and cardio-respiratory fitness is determined by the oxygen consumption. The purpose of the current study was to determine the relationship between predicted oxygen consumption towards physical fitness and anthropometric components on Malaysian youth. A total of 219 male student-athletes randomly were recruited to participate in this study with aged between 13-15 years old groups from entire state
... in Malaysia. Anthropometric and physical fitness battery test were conducted to the student-athletes and recorded for further analysis. To achieve an objective, Multiple Linear Regression were computed whereas VO2max denoted as a determiner meanwhile others physical fitness components and anthropometrics were selected for the predictors. Even though aerobic capacity model shows weak association on anthropometrics and physical performances (R 2 = 0.275, ≈ 27.5%), still it proved to be a significant effect, p< 0.0001. The main contributor that effect the association is dominantly by 40m speed (40.95%), weight (23.81%), Push up (13.33%), 10m speed (9.52%) and Power/standing broad jump (5.71%). Finding summarize the proportionality of each predictors toward the importance of oxygen consumption model which suggesting the contribution each factor that enroll for the better cardio-respiratory fitness efficiency.
