Abstract

The purpose of this research is to define the relationship between anthropometric and physiological variables in elite distance and middle distance runners of Iranian national athletics team for the 3000 m performance. To do this, a sample of 30 elite runners with the mean age of 21.10±0.63 and mean height of 177.8±5.82 and mean weight of 64.26±7.07 were used. Characteristics of anthropometric and physiological and their relationship for the athletes were measured. The Pearson regression with (p≤0.05) was used for this analysis. From 41 variables 8 of them had a meaningful relationship with the performance of athletes which from these body fat mass (kg) and percentage of fat (%) had a positive and meaningful relationship with the performance and a negative and meaningful relationship between distribution of fat and performance. Between VO2max (ml/min/kg), anaerobic power, VO2max LT (ml/min) and the performance there was a negative and meaningful relationship. Between rest heart rate, breath rate and the performance there was a positive and meaningful relationship.
