Body Composition Analysis of Female Basketball Players in Chinese Universities

Conference paper
Part of the Lecture Notes in Electrical Engineering book series (LNEE, volume 206)


The purpose of the study was to determine the physique and body composition of female basketball players in Chinese universities and to examine these variables in relation to their playing position. Thirteen females of the Chinese Basketball teams were measured on thirteen different anthropometric sites. Including: females’ PBF (24.65 ± 2.73). Females’ BMI (22.98 ± 2.32). Females’ FFM (55.69 ± 7.58) and STD W (70.72 ± 5.93). At nutrients, females’ protein (11.33 ± 1.49), minerals (4.26 ± 0.65) and TBW (40.09 ± 5.46). Females’ body age (20.31 ± 2.06). On basal metabolism, females’ BMR (1426 ± 90) and TEC (2196 ± 138). Females’ WHR (0.74 ± 0.03).
