Abstract

Body composition parameters may be associated with motor fitness. The aim of the study wasto evaluate the relationship between strength endurance, anthropometric features, body composition and physiological parameters in individuals with low or moderate levels of physical activity performing extreme exercise. The study involved 45 female and 51 male participants (20.05±1.81 and 20.20±2.71 y, respectively). The participants’ physical activity levels were evaluated before the study with the International Physical Activity Questionnaire. Physiological parameters were measured using a heart rate monitor. The correlations between the evaluated parameters were determined using Spearman’s rank correlation test. The analyzed physiological parameters were most significantly correlated with physical exertion values within the maximum effort range. In
both female and male participants, the number of cycles was significantly and negatively correlated with body mass (r=-0.78 and r=-0.67), degree of obesity (r=-0.87 and r = -0.74), BMI (r=-0.85 and r = -0.76), BFM (r=- 0.81 and r=-0.58) and VFL (r=-0.81 and r=-0.59). Physiological parameters (PTE, energy expenditure, VO2avg, max, EPOC avg, peak, and RR avg, max) were significantly and positively correlated with maximum physical effort. Somatic features and body composition parameters are significantly correlated with strength endurance in
females and males aged 18-29 years.
