Abstract
Introduction: The aim of this study was to investigate the relationship between physical fitness, body composition and blood pressure in active and passive students.
Methodology: This study was correlational research method. The subjects were Tehran University male students aged 20-27 years. A total of 100 persons were selected. Our results showed that there is inverse relationship between physical fitness and body composition of active students in vertical jump with BMI.
Results: The results showed a significant inverse relationship between physical fitness and body composition only in the vertical jump and BMI, a significant relationship between physical fitness and blood pressure and systolic blood pressure only in the sit-up and a significant relationship between body composition and blood pressure only between BMI and diastolic BP and a significant relationship between body composition and body fat percentage among active students. The overall conclusion from this study is that there is a significant relationship between physical fitness and body composition only in vertical jump. Thus, the much work in vertical jump, the more reduction in BMI, which can have positive and beneficial effects on individual components. On the other hand, sit and reach can lead to high blood pressure is active students and also, high BMI can also enhance diastolic blood pressure that is bad. In both active and passive students high BMI increases fat percentage.
Discussion: It was concluded that it is desirable to keep the students' physical fitness to prevent problems such as high blood pressure, high BMI and high fat content and it is possible through physical activity and keep yourself in optimal physical condition possible
