Require assistance with possible ANOVA use

I have recorded the dominant hand strength from all of my participants. I have also recorded a number of anthropometric properties of my participants, including a measure of skin-fold adjusted forearm girth, with the intention of estimating the amount of musculature in the forearm. I have recorded this data from 18 males and 18 females.

I would like to illustrate the interpretation of any sex-related differences in grip strength that might i fI consider the amount of musculature in the forearm.

Am I correct to assume that I should be using a simple ANOVA for this analysis?

Thanks,

Dants

Could be wrong, but I don't think your sample size is large enough to get a statistically significant result, assuming there was one.

I have yet to start the analytics. I was more so inquiring about which analysis was appropriate to use in order to find the results.

If the assumptions of ANOVA are satisfied, you should be good to go.
