Abstract

Objectives: To evaluate the correlation between the aerobic capacity and breathing pattern in obese adults.

Methods: Thirty young obese adults in the age group of 18-25 (college students) were selected for the study. Weight in kilos divided by height in square metres was used to calculate body mass index. The aerobic capacity was predicted by YMCA-3 min step test. The breathing pattern was assessed with the breathing hi-lo test.

Results: YMCA 3 min step test shows highly significant negative correlation with breathing pattern, r = -0.310, p < 0.05. BMI shows highly significant negative correlation with breathing pattern, r = -0.565, p < 0.05. In contrast, BMI shows highly significant positive correlation with YMCA 3 min step test score, r = -0.565, p < 0.

Conclusion: The findings indicate that in young obese people, there was a strong inverse relationship between aerobic capacity and breathing pattern. These results highlight the significance of obese people' poor cardiorespiratory fitness, which may play a role in the later onset of cardiovascular co-morbidities in middle life.
