Abstract
Professional athletes require constant exercise and muscle-specific training to achieve excellent levels of athletic performance and have to spend a great deal of time in that field of exercise; as a result, depending on the dominant status of each physical activity and amount of exercise. The abnormalities of athletes in that field are affected.
This is a cross-sectional- descriptive study. The target population of the study was 12-14-year-old boys in teen middle and high school. The sample consisted of 30 individuals (13 volleyball players and 17 basketball players) with purposeful training of at least three sessions per week. Descriptive statistics were used to express mean and standard deviation and the Kolmogorov-Smirnov test was used to express the normality of the data. Independent t-test and Mann-Whitney test were used to compare the motor and postural variables by SPSS software at a significant level of 0.05.
According to the results, there was a significant difference between motor skills, Sargent jump and 49*. There was no significant difference between the two groups in hand grip and crunch test. Also, there was no significant difference between the volleyball and basketball groups in postural abnormalities
The results of different researches show that the anomalies among the students are high. The results of the present study indicate that the sports fields with respect to muscle activation control the posture adequately, but in the motor skills due to the nature of each field, they have some effect on some parameters, as in the research. Volleyball players now have more explosive power, so more attention is needed to training programs for athletes to improve their physical condition.
