Effect of Core Muscles Endurance on Walking Speed in Healthy Individuals

Srishti Gupta | Dr. Jasobanta Sethi


Abstract: Background: The trunk plays a vital role in limb movement and manipulation. Hence core muscles endurance invariably affects the performance of lower extremities. Thus this study tried to establish a relation between core muscles endurance and walking speed in healthy individuals. Methodology: 100 subjects were selected based on the inclusion criteria. Initially core muscles endurance was assessed using McGill trunk endurance test. Then the walking speed was assessed using 10 meter walk test. Results: Pearson’s correlation analysis was done to find the relationship between walking speed and core muscles endurance, r was calculated between McGill trunk flexor test and walking speed (r=0.54), McGill core extensor test and walking speed (r=0.49), m=McGill side plank for left and right side (r=0.57, 0.51 respectively). The level of significance was set at p
