Aim: It is understood at age 20 or 21 that men stop growing taller since testosterone causes epiphyseal closure, which prevents the long bones. In contrast to the increase in weight gain as body fat making weight loss difficult, as well as health problems associated with obesity. Our interest in this study deals with the superiority of anthropometric risk index in predicting the effect of stopping height growth on aerobic fitness profile. As the fundamental morphofunctional index risks documented by similar studies in its importance via adult elite soccer players. Methods: The present study was based on standardizing data for maximum volume of oxygen (VO2max) categories fitness as morphofunctional characteristics versus waist circumference, body mass index, body shape index (ABSI), and body fat percent index (BFP). As the most anthropometric risk index for sixty adults, elite players in the Algerian championship, division one. Results: Thus, the analyses statistics we confirm are as follows: (a) Stopping growing taller affect negatively all anthropometric risk index relative to VO2max in the opposite height. (b) Stopping growing taller increased the total body fat validity by ABSI z-score complimentary to ABSI as risk index predicting the impact stop height on body excess relative to aerobic fitness profile among elite soccer players. (c) Heart rate (HR) relates to ABSI z-score scoring are the superior's anthropometric index risk, taking into their account the fat distribution and their outcome of cardiovascular diseases narrates with O2 transportation or consumption. Conclusions: The results of the current research allow us for the following conclusions: (1) the stopping growing taller increase the accumulation of fat, making the weight loss difficult at this stage of age. (2) Preventing the aftermath of the testosterone requires from the coach to appropriate training procedures based on dominant energy relative to the body changes compared to the levels of aerobic capacity. (3) RHR and ABSI z-score are the favorable anthropometric index risk, predicting the excess of body weight on the request aerobic fitness profile through soccer player.
