Purpose: Due to the character of the chess game, the players' participation in physical activities is limited as they practice sitting for a long time (3-4 hours/day) during the day. This may increase the risk of overweight/obesity and related chronic diseases by increasing the sedentary lifestyle for chess players. The aim of this study is to compare the total and regional body composition components of elite chess players with body mass index (BMI), age and sex-matched controls.
Individuals and Methods: 12 A-National chess players (age: 24.9±5.9 years; BMI: 23.5±2.8 kg/m2) and 12 control participants (age: 24.6±1.6 years; BMI: 23.5±3.3 kg/m2) were included in the study. . Body composition was measured with a dual energy x-ray absorptiometry device. In the comparison of chess and control groups, t-test analysis was used in independent groups.
Results:Compared to the control group, chess players had higher total fat mass, visceral fat mass and fat ratio; lean soft tissue mass and bone mass were found to be lower, but these differences were not statistically significant (p>0.05). Total fat ratio of female chess players was similar to that of the control group (p>0.05), and visceral fat mass was lower (p=0.015). Although male chess players had lower lean soft tissue and higher fat ratio compared to the control group, no statistically significant difference was found (p>0.05). Although the regional fat ratios (arm, trunk, leg, android, gynoid) of chess players in both genders were higher than the control group, this finding was not statistically significant (p>0.05). When body fat and muscle level indicators are evaluated, Although male chess players had higher fat mass index, lower total and appendicular lean soft tissue mass index compared to the control group, these differences were not statistically significant (p>0.05). Fat mass index and appendicular lean soft tissue mass index values in female chess players were similar to the control group (p>0.05), while lean soft tissue mass index was found to be lower (p=0.022).
Conclusion: Total and regional body composition components of A national chess players evaluated in this study are similar to equivalent controls in terms of BMI, age and gender.
