Conclusion

I scored body composition very high for this reason. A sumo will also need good levels of power; fast bursts of strength will be crucial when wrestling. It will also be helpful to maintain good balance when they are pushing or being pushed. These types of wrestlers will not need many other components due to the nature of the sport. Kick boxing Kick boxers will also be required to maintain a certain weight this the reason for a high score in body composition. Unlike regular boxers they will need components such as flexibility and balance. This is because they need to n move more parts of their body around and to different positions. They will have to perform high kicks, which will require a combination of balance agility and flexibility. This may also require them to be reasonable co-ordinated, as they will be moving different parts of the body at the same time. Other components such as speed and reaction time would be high, as they will be responding to fast movements from opponents, avoiding punches or kicks. They will also need to be aerobically fit to last the intense rounds.
