  • Body Composition — refers primarily to the distribution of muscle and fat in the body. Body size such as height, lengths and girths are also grouped under this component.

  • In physical fitness, body composition is used to describe the percentages of fat, bone, water and muscle in human bodies. Because muscular tissue takes up less space in our body than fat tissue, our body composition, as well as our weight, determines leanness. Two people of same sex and body weight may look completely different from each other because they have a different body composition

<Anatomy of a player>

Like dancers and singers, football players’ bodies are their instruments, their means of performance and expression. Although professionals are generally getting taller and increasingly fitter, the game still offers space for a variety of physiques and specialisms.

Key requirements

Although players vary in size and shape, all top-level players have certain anatomical requirements in common. Strong leg muscles—the calf, thigh muscles, and hamstrings—are the most important. Good upper-body strength is also vital.

  • The composition of the body is composed of various components such as the height , the balanced body, and the muscle necessary for the exercise.


  • For a football player, good fit and strong strength are advantageous, but not necessarily the two factors


  • Football players have the ability to adapt to their own body’s technology and environment, and they can make up for deficiencies and excel in their ability to adapt to the body.

Even though, they have a comprehensive physical athletic ability including football intelligence and advanced technique as a professional football player
