Sport Specific Anthropometry

Tests of anthropometry include measurements of body size, structure, and composition. There is a wide range of ideal body shapes and compositions, depending on the sports, the playing position and the fitness level. For many sports it is an advantage to be short, tall, heavy or light. In terms of body composition, an athlete may wish to have anything from high muscularity to high fat levels. See the links to detailed information about anthropometric measurements for a range of sports.
