Abstract: The purpose of the study was to compare the selected physiological variables between men and women Gymnastics and Mallakhamb Performers. To achieve this purpose of the study, only sixty players were selected. Among them, fifteen men Gymnastics players, fifteen men Mallakhamb Performers, fifteen women Gymnastics players and fifteen women Mallakhamb Performers studying in various colleges in Villupuram District, Tamil Nadu, India with a age group of 18 to 24 years were selected at random. The following physiological variables such as breath holding time and resting pulse rate were selected as criterion variables. The data were collected from men and women Gymnastics and Mallakhamb Performers on breath holding time and resting pulse rate by using holding the breath for time and taking radial pulse respectively. Two way analysis of variance was used to analyze the significant difference, if any among the groups. The .05 level of confidence was fixed to the level of significance which was considered as an appropriate. The results of the study showed that there was significant differences exist between men and women players irrespective of the games on selected criterion variables and also the results of the study showed that there was significant differences exist between Gymnastics and Mallakhamb Performers irrespective of the gender of selected criterion variables. The results of the study further showed that there was a significant difference between men and women Gymnastics and Mallakhamb Performers on selected criterion variables such as breath holding time and resting pulse rate.
