Relationship Between Grip Strength and Muscle Strength in Sedentary Behavior Groups

Abstract

For the active population, there is some evidence of a relationship between grip
strength and muscle strength. However, only small researches conducted for a sedentary
population. The sedentary behavior population is groups of persons with light-intensity
activity in their daily routines. This study aimed to find the relationship between grip
strength and muscle strength in a sedentary society, represented by inactive
undergraduate students. The study included 94 students between 18 – 21 years. Grip
strength and six muscles group were measured, representing overall body muscle
strength. All data statistically tested with Pearson correlation test and continued with
linear regression to obtain a regression model for predicting the value of body muscle
strength. As a result, grip strength was significantly correlated to body muscle strength.
For male and female respondents, two linear regression models were formed. First was a
regression model of grip strength toward overall body muscle strength, and the second
was the regression model of grip strength toward wrist muscle strength. For the female
respondents, aside from grip strength, body height and weight also correlated with
overall body muscle strength. Considering the result of the Pearson correlation, the
relationship between grip strength toward body muscle strength in the sedentary
population was significantly positive. The higher the value of grip strength, the muscle
strength would be increased, and also conversely
