  16. Sagittal or Medial plane: A sagittal plane is a vertical plane passing from the rear to the front, dividing the body into left and right halves. It is also known as the anteroposterior plane. Most of the sports and exercise movements that are two-dimensional, such as running, long jumping and somersault takes place in this plane.
    Transverse or Horizontal plane: The transverse plane divides the body into top and bottom halves. In fact, it divides the body into upper and lower sections. This plane lies horizontally that why it is also called a horizontal plane. Movements along this plane can include an ice-skating spin or rotation to play a tennis shot.ORAn axis is a straight line around which an object rotates. Movements at the joints of the human musculoskeletal system are mainly rotational and take place about a line perpendicular to the plane in which they occur. This line is known as the axis of rotation.
    There are the following types of axes of rotation:

    1. Sagittal axis: The sagittal axis passes horizontally from posterior to anterior. It is formed by the intersection of the sagittal and transverse plane. The sagittal axis passes from front to back.
    2. Frontal axis: The frontal axis passes horizontally from left to right. It is formed by the intersection of the frontal and horizontal plane. The frontal axis passes from side to side.
    3. Vertical axis: The vertical axis passes vertically from inferior to superior. It passes straight through the top of the head down between feet. It is formed by the intersection of the sagittal and frontal plane. It is also known as the longitudinal axis. It is the longest axis.
  17. This test consists of the following six items:
    1. Pull-ups : In the case of girls, the pull-ups are to be started from a flexed arm hang. This test item judges the arm and shoulder girdle strength.

  22. Vitamins are complex compounds of carbon and essential for the normal functioning of body. It is important for the metabolism of fats and carbohydrates and helps to repair and maintenance of various tissues. Vitamins are natural substances found in plants and animals and known as Essential nutrients for human beings. Human body uses these substances to stay healthy and support its many functions. There are two types of vitamins: water-soluble and fat-soluble. Deficiencies of vitamins and minerals may be caused by disease states such as malabsorption.ORProteins are the basic structure of all living cells. These are complex organic compounds. Protein is a chain of amino acids that contain carbon, oxygen, hydrogen, and nitrogen.
    These are two types of proteins:
    (i) Non-essential proteins
    (ii) Essential proteins
    All meat and other animal products are sources of proteins. The best sources are eggs, milk, meat, poultry, milk products, beans etc.
    Functions of Proteins:

Physical activities and sports are the basic needs of human beings which help in the development of well-balanced personality.
  24. The adaptive effects that take place in our cardiovascular system after engaging in exercise for a longer period are:
    1. Increase in heart size We cannot do the exercise on our heart directly, but when we perform any exercise regularly, our heart size increases. Exercising develops the muscles of the heart.
    2. Increase in heart rate Generally an adult has a heart rate of 72 beats per minute while resting, but when he exercises, his heart rate increases as per the intensity and duration of the exercise.
    3. An increase in stroke volume is the quantity of blood which the heart pumps out in a single stroke. Due to the heart’s size increases, the stroke volume increases.
    4. The decrease in cholesterol level Regular exercise reduces the cholesterol level in our blood, which has a direct link with blood pressure.
    5. Increase in number and efficiency of capillaries Regular exercise increases the number of capillaries and their efficiency.
    6. Reduced risk of heart diseases Regular exercise gradually reduces stress-related hormones from circulating in the blood. This results in an increase of blood flow in the blood vessels, which in turn, lowers the risk of building up of plaque which affects the heart. Hence, regular exercise. reduces the risk of heart diseases.
    7. Slow down brain aging the regular physical activity reduces the risk of mild cognitive impairment.
    8. Improve muscular strength Ageing process does not hinder the individual’s ability to enhance muscle strength.
    9. Enhance the capacity of lungs Regular physical activity enhances the capacity of lungs
    10. Improve flexibility Regular physical activity improves the elasticity of tendons, ligaments and joint capsules.


    Coordinative abilities are those abilities that enable an individual to do various related activities accurately and efficiently. Coordinative abilities mainly depend on the Central Nervous System.

    1. Orientation ability

  25. The league tournament is one in which if it is a single league tournament then each team plays with every other team once, if it is a double league tournament then each team plays with every team twice. There are two methods of drawing fixture:
    a) Staircase method:
    Here, no. of teams (n) = 10
    No. of matches = n(n-1)/2 = 45

    b) Cyclic method :
    Here, no. of teams (n) = 10
    No. of matches = n(n-1)/2 = 45
    No. of rounds = no. of teams – 1= 10-1 = 9ORLeague: These are also called Round robin tournament.
    There are two types of league tournaments:

    1. Single league tournament: In this type of tournament, every team shall play once with every other team. The total number of matches in a single league tournament shall be n(n1)2n(n−1)2
      For example, if 10 teams are competing, the total number of matches to be played shall be n(n1)2=10(101)2=10(9)2n(n−1)2=10(10−1)2=10(9)2
    2. Double league tournament: In this type of tournament, every team shall play twice with every other team. The total number of matches shall be n (n – 1), e.g., 10 teams are competing for the total number of matches:
      n (n – 1) = 10 (10 – 1) = 10 (9) = 90 matches.
  26. Rockport Fitness Walking Test : This test is very good to measure the Cardio-Respiratory fitness of the individual. Thus the objective of this test is to monitor the development of the athlete‘s maximum Cardio-Respiratory ability (VO2).Requirements of Test : (i) Running track (200 m or 400 m), (ii) Stopwatch, (iii) An Assistant/Helper.Administration of Test :
    1. Choose a windless day to conduct the test.
    2. Record your weight in pounds (lbs)
    3. Walk one mile (1609 mt) as fast as possible.
    4. Record the time to complete the one-mile walk.
    5. Immediately on finishing the walk record your heart rate (beats per minute).
    6. Determine your Maximum Cardio-Respiratory ability (VO2) from the calculation given below.

    Calculation Procedure :

    Analysis of the result is done by comparing it with the result of the previous test. It is expected that appropriate training between each test should be done to show improvement.

    The formula used to calculate

    VO2 Max is : 132·853 – (0·0769 × weight) – (0·3877 × Age) + (6·315 × Gender) – (3·2649 × Time) – (0·1565 × Heart rate)


    1. Weight is in pounds (lbs),
    2. Gender : Male = 1 and Female = 0
    3. Time is expressed in minutes and seconds,
    4. Heart rate is in beats/minute
    5. Age in years.
