Relationship between selected measures of central adiposity and cardio-respiratory fitness


Author(s): Dr. Anju Luthra

Abstract:
The study was conducted to determine the relationship between selected measures of central adiposity and cardio-respiratory fitness. The study was conducted on 30 adult males in the age range of 35- 45 years. The variables selected as measure of central adiposity were sagittal abdominal diameter, waist girth and cardio-respiratory fitness (measured through 1 mile Rockport test). Product moment correlation (r) was employed to determine the relationship between selected measures of central adiposity and cardio-respiratory fitness. The results revealed an inverse significant correlation between sagittal abdominal diameter and waist girth with cardio-respiratory fitness as the coefficient of correlation obtained was -0.621 and -0.665 respectively at p≤ 0.05 level of significance. The result signifies that a higher sagittal abdominal diameter and a higher waist girth leads to a lower cardio-respiratory fitness which is an indicator for lower cardiac health and which may cause cardiac diseases.
