Dr. Anju LataAbstract:
Present study aimed at the assessment of cardiovascular fitness in relation to Body Mass Index BMI and self control level of under graduate college women. Fifty (N=50) female students studying in MCM DAV College for Women, Chandigarh were selected as subjects for the study, The age of the subjects ranged from 18 to 21 years. Cardiovascular Fitness was determined by Harved step test (short form) developed by Brouha et al
. (1943) 
. Body mass index (BMI) of all the subjects was determined by dividing body weight in kilogram by the square of height in meters. However, self control level of students measured by Brief self control questionnaire developed by Tangney, et al
. (2004) 
. To determine the relationship among cardiovascular fitness, BMI as well as self control level multiple correlations was applied. The level of significance was set at 0.01 and 0.05. Results revealed that cardiovascular fitness had statistically insignificant correlation with BMI as the coefficient of correlation value was higher than 0.01 level. However, cardiovascular fitness had demonstrated significant positive relationship with self control.Pages: 43-46 | 482 Views 17 DownloadsDownload Full Article:
