No significant change was observed in the preliminary and final measurements of the experimental group's Weight, BMI, Forearm Circumference and Handgrip (p>0,05).
On the other hand, no significant difference was identified among the measurements of body weight, BMI and forearm circumference.
By allowing arterial inflow, but inhibiting venous outflow, the rate of swelling of the forearm in ml x 100 [ml.sup.-1] of tissue-[min.sup.-1] (% per min) was calculated by changes in forearm circumference. The Noninvasive Vascular Program (NIVP3) software package was used to capture the waveforms sent by the EC6 plethysmograph, to edit the arterial inflow slopes, and to control the rapid cuff inflator.
In never married men (Table 5) waist circumference, forearm circumference, subscapular skinfold thickness showed significant difference between sedentary subjects (No exercise) and the active groups (Irregular and Regular exercise).
An inelastic tape was used to measure hip, waist, thigh, arm and forearm circumferences. For hip circumference, the tape was placed around the buttocks in a horizontal plane at the level of maximum protrusion of the buttocks.
Forearm circumference was measured at the midpoint between olecranon process of ulna and styloid process of radius bones by flexible measuring tape.
[10] To calculate the body fat percentage the following anthropometric measurements including forearm circumference, wrist circumference, waist circumference, and hip circumference were measured with students standing erect with abdomen relaxed, arms at the side and feet together with the help of an inch tape in inches at the end of a normal expiration, without the tape compressing the skin to the nearest 0.1 cm was tabulated.
In addition, hand length, palm width, length, forearm length, forearm circumference and wrist circumference were significantly different between the groups.
The following measurements were taken: upper arm circumference (cm), flexed upper arm circumference (cm), forearm circumference (cm), thigh circumference (cm), mid-thigh circumference (cm), calf circumference (cm), shoulder width (cm), pelvic width (cm), elbow diameter (cm), wrist diameter (cm), knee diameter (cm), ankle diameter (cm), sub scapular skin fold (mm), triceps skin fold (mm), biceps skin fold (mm), forearm skin fold (mm), abdomen skin fold (mm), chest skin fold (mm), supraspinale skin fold (mm), thigh skin fold (mm), and calf skin fold (mm).
The upper limb region included the left arm volume, left arm surface area, left arm length, right arm volume, right arm surface area, right arm length, left upper arm circumference, right upper arm circumference, left forearm circumference, and right forearm circumference.
Abdominal skinfold thickness, mid arm circumference, maximum forearm circumference, and body mass index were significantly higher in diabetics than non-diabetics (P < 0.005).
Wrestlers in the present study exhibited linear relationships for age versus abdominal, biceps, and forearm circumferences, but quadratic relationships for age versus hip, thigh, and calf circumferences that plateaued at approximately 16 yrs of age (Figure 3).
