Abstract: Combining the Skinfold Method and Body Mass Index to Determine the Body Composition of Middle Aged Men Dr. Sujoy Birbanshi Assistant Professor of Physical Education, Raja Birendra Chandra College, Kandi, Murshidabad, West Bengal, India sujoybappa@gmail.com Abstract Aim: The aim of this study was to determine the relationship between body mass index (BMI) and body fat percentage (% BF) among 518 mid-age men (ages, 35-45y) from different areas in West Bengal, India. Method: A total of 518 men between the ages of 35 and 45 were chosen from various West Bengal districts to participate in the study. Body mass Index, Percentage of body fat and Lean body mass were the selected parameters of the study. The anthropometric equation in kg/m2 was used to measure BMI of the subjects calculated from height and body weight. Body composition was estimated by skin fold method using Harpenden’s skinfold caliper. Four-site skin fold thickness was taken in mm. The Body fat percentage (BF%) & Lean Body Mass (LBM) were recorded using the formulae of Durnin and J. Womersley, 2007. The data were examined using Product-Moment method of Correlation as statistical technique using SPSS 20. The level of significance was set at 0.05. Conclusion: BMI and BF% were shown to be significantly correlated and its changes could reflect the variations of BF% (r = 0.259, p<0.01); Body Mass Index and Lean Body Weight (r = -0.120, p<0.01) of the mid-age sedentary men. Key words: - Mid Age Men, Sedentary Habits, Body Composition
Keywords: Mid Age Men, Sedentary Habits, Body Composition, Body Fat, Lean Body Mass, Body Mass Index (BMI)
