Differences in body components and the significance of rehabilitation for taekwondo athletes compared to nonathletes

Volume 4, Number 3 (2012), 203-208DOI: 10.1007/s13530-012-0137-2


It is well known that the difference in individual characteristics showed between somatotypes and body components. However, few studies have investigated differences in body components and gender in taekwondo athletes compared to nonathletes. The present study is to analyze the body components and skin-fold thickness of taekwondo athletes compared to nonathletes, and to contribute to current research on rehabilitation and its application and significance. The fat body mass and impedance were significantly decreased in the taekwondo athlete compared with the nonathletic groups. The same values of the men group showed significantly greater decreases than those of the women in both the nonathlete and taekwondo groups. But, the lean body mass, basal metabolic rate (BMR), and total body water were significantly increased in the taekwondo athlete compared with the nonathletic groups. In terms of gender, the values of the men in both the nonathlete and taekwondo groups showed significantly greater increases than those of the women of both groups. However, there were no significant differences between the men and women skin-fold thickness data for all participants. Therefore, these results, in part, found that there was a difference in body components between taekwondo athletes and nonathletes. Also, when applying physical stimuli such as electrotherapy, ultrasound, and heat, the body components of each patient for healthy life need to be carefully considered.
