Abstract:

The purpose of the present study was to compare the flexibility and body composition between residential and non-residential school students. To achieve the objective of the study, one thousand two hundred (n=1200) i.e. six hundred (n=600) residential school boys and six hundred (n=600) non-residential school boys from Manipur were taken randomly as subjects for the study. The age of the subjects ranged between 13-15 years. Flexibility was measured by using Sit & Reach Test and body composition was measured by using Skinfold Caliper (Biceps, Triceps, Subscapular and Suprailliac). To determine the significant difference on flexibility and body composition, an independent ‘t’ test was applied with the help of SPSS software. The level of significance was set at 0.05. Statistical calculation on gathered data showed that there was significant difference on flexibility and body composition. The residential school boys had shown significantly higher in flexibility than non-residential school boys. On the other hand, non-residential school boys had shown significantly higher in body composition than the residential school boys.
