Abstract: Skeletal muscle mass and total body fat both are essential part of an individual’s body composition. Body composition includes three important components i.e. fat, muscle and bone, human body should composed of required ratio of these components any fluctuation in which can leads to the disturbance in body composition, now the question is, if any of the component decrease in concentration is the other component replace it to balance the body composition, with this in mind the present study analyzed the relationship between skeletal muscle mass and body fat on 100 purposively selected from different professional courses of Lovely Professional University with age 22.090 +- 2.17 sd. The data was collected using OMRON Body composition monitor with scale Model HBF-362 and the statistical analysis of the data was done using descriptive statistics and PPMCC at 0.01 level of significance. The findings of the study revealed significant negative correlation i.e. an increase in the percent body fat can leads to the decrease in skeletal muscle mass and vice-versa.
