Correlation of body fat percentage, fat mass, fat free mass, and fat free mass index with hand grip strength in healthy young males in a tertiary health care center of South Odisha

Sephali Acharya, Minati Patnaik, Kodi Pradeep Kumar, Snigdha Prava Mishra.

Abstract
Background: Handgrip strength (HGS) is an important parameter to assess the upper extremity muscular strength.

Aims and Objectives: Aim of the study is to record HGS in healthy young males and to compare with fat mass (FM), fat-free mass, fat-free mass index, and to find out which is better correlated.

Materials and Methods: A total of one hundred and fourteen first year male medical students of age between 17 and 22 years were taken as sample.

Results: The correlation between fat free mass, fat free mass index with HGS was found to be extremely significant whereas correlation between FAT%, FM with HGS was not significant.

Conclusion: Increase in lean body mass increases muscular strength as fat-free mass and fat-free mass index positively and significantly correlated with HGS.

Key words: Body Fat%; Fat Mass; Fat Free Mass; Fat Free Mass Index; Handgrip Strength
