Relationship between selected measures of visceral fat distribution and cardio-respiratory fitness


Author(s): Dr. Anju Luthra

Abstract: The study was conducted to determine the relationship between selected measures of visceral fat distribution, girth and cardio-respiratory fitness. The study was conducted on 40 adult females in the age group of 35-40 years. To determine the relationship between selected measures of visceral fat distribution with cardio-respiratory fitness, product moment correlation (r) was employed. The result indicates that an inverse significant correlation between abdominal height (AbH) and cardio-respiratory fitness (CRF) since the value obtained for calculated “r” was -0.447. A significant correlation was obtained for abdominal height with body mass index, upper arm circumference, waist: height ratio since the value obtained for calculated “r” were 0.791, 0.501 and 0.598 respectively. A significant correlation was also obtained for body mass index (BMI) with upper arm circumference (UAC) and waist: height ratio (WHtR) since the value obtained for calculated “r” were 0.560 and 0.758 respectively. Upper arm circumference was correlated significant with waist: height ratio since the value for calculated “r” were 0.378 which was above than the value of tabulated “r” 0.361 significant at 0.05 level. An inverse correlation was obtained between abdominal height and cardio-respiratory fitness while an insignificant correlation was obtained between cardio-respiratory fitness with the other selected measures of visceral fat distribution and girth, namely body mass index, upper arm circumference, waist: height ratio.
