Abstract : Universiti Pendidikan Sultan Idris
This study was conducted aiming to determine the relationship between handgrip strength with various elbow angle and the other strength tests score. 200 university female were recruited as study participants and performed the 1RM test for bench press and squat, and five level sit up. Pearson Correlation was conducted to determine the relationship between handgrip strength and these tests. Results showed that only bench press was significantly correlated with all the handgrip strength test in different elbow angle. Squat on the other hand was found to be significantly correlated with handgrip strength at 180º flexion at right hand and full flexion at left hand. However, the correlation value was found to be low. As shown in the results, although several variables were shown to be significantly correlated, the levels of correlation are very week. Thus, handgrip strength test is not a suitable strength assessment instrument among the trained female.
