A Detailed Studies of Anthropometric Indicators and Their Relationship with Metabolic Variables

The goal of this study is to see if the percentage of body fat, the body mass index (BMI), and the waist-hip ratio (WHR) have a relationship with the metabolic variables of heart rate, blood pressure (systolic and diastolic), and the double product in the anthropometrical indicators used in this chapter. In a population of 69 participants with an average age of 41.7 6.6 years, the Bruce Protocol was revised to evaluate metabolic variables, and the Petroski formula was used to compute the percentage of fat. The data was statistically treated using the “Statistical 5.0” programme. The correlation is calculated by using a statistical significance test (p 0.05) to calculate the simple coefficient of Pearson “r.” According to the data, heart rate was significantly connected with strength of power, as well as fat percentage and BMI. Blood pressure and BMI revealed a high correlation, especially among women. The WHR was the anthropometrical measure that had significant relationships with blood pressure in the male group, as it reveals a linkage between the pattern of male body fat distribution (android) and blood pressure. The BMI had a high relationship with the double-product, which we infer is due to the fact that this anthropometric measure is linked to body mass. Because the BMI is the sole metric employed here that incorporates lean mass in its calculations, it accurately reflects the myocardium’s function. Only body fat percentage was found to be inversely related to treadmill duration; in other words, the higher the percentage, the less time spent on the treadmill.
