- ItemThe Contribution of Some Anthropometric Measures in Predicting Selected Static and Dynamic Pulmonary Volumes amongst Professional Soccer Players in Palestine(2014) & Antarah Jawaada; Abdelnaser QadomiThe purpose of this study was to determine the contribution of some anthropometric measures in predicting selected static and dynamic pulmonary volumes amongst professional soccer players in Palestine, The study was conducted on a sample of (72) players, mean age, height, and body mass were respectively: (23.8 years, 176 cm and 71 kg), some anthropometric measures and selected static and dynamic pulmonary volumes were measured. Based on using Pearson correlation coefficient (R) and stepwise regression analysis (R2) the results of the study revealed five equations to predict the measures of Vital Capacity (VC), Tidal Volume (TV),Forced Vital Capacity (FVC), Forced Expiratory Volume at first second (FEV1), and maximum Voluntary Ventilation (MVV) according to anthropometric measures. The researchers recommended generalizing the results to benefit the coaches and researchers to evaluate player’s health status and the effectiveness of training programs.
