Background: Performance sports are carried out with high intensity and require excellent physical preparedness. This study aims to determine the relationship between height, weight, and athlete's blood hemoglobin level.
Methods: This research was an analytic observational type with a cross-sectional study design among 49 male and female athletes enrolled with the total sampling technique. Data were analyzed with a descriptive test, and normality test, and multiple correlations. A significance value of p â‰¤ 0.05 and research data was analyzed using software SPSS version 20 for Windows.
Results: Most respondents in both genders were normal in BMI (85.72%). However, anemia status tends to be higher in males (23.33%) than females (10.52%). The multiple correlation tests showed a moderate level of correlation with a value of r=0.408. The significance analysis of the value of p=0.015 indicatesthat there is a significant correlation between Height, Weight, and Blood Hemoglobin (Hb) level (p<0.05).
Conclusion: There is a significant moderate positive correlation between height and weight to blood hemoglobin level.
