Background- Body Mass Index (BMI) is defined as abnormal or excessive fat accumulation that may impair health. BMI is depends on various factors like physical inactivity, sedentary lifestyle, intake of fatty food, hormonal imbalance etc. It has been observed that in recent times reduced amount of physical activity tremendously impact the BMI over a period of time. Being a part of sedentary lifestyle is a vicious habit that tends to accumulate fat deposition in the body specifically in the visceral area which further compromises the musculoskeletal efficiency of the core. If this sedentary habit is not broken down in given period of time, it will cause irreversible systemic changes and at times fatal consequences like, early death. The effect of this sedentary lifestyle causes a gradual negative effect on the overall productivity of life. Time forearm plank test is the one of the best measuring tools for assessment of muscular endurance of the core musculature.It is need of an hour to use this simple yet effective measuring tool to understand its correlation to the increasing BMI. Aims & Objectives- To study the co-relation between muscular endurance of timed forearm plant test with Body Mass Index in sedentary urban females of age group 25 to 55 Materials & Methods A total of 60 females participated into the study. Depending on the inclusion criteria (females, age group 25 to 55) and exclusion criteria (males, musculoskeletal low back pain, pregnancy, recent surgery for the limbs or back, high blood pressure, vertigo and females who were unwilling to participate in the study), 40 sedentary females were selected for the study. The importance of study was explained to the subjects. Their BMI was calculated with the help of Tanita Body Composition Monitor (Model: BC-541N). Time forearm plank test was first demonstrated to the subjects and then they wear asked to perform the test. All the readings were recorded in the data chart along with the demographic data.
