Abstract: newline ABSTRACT newline newline The purpose of the study w¬as to develop physiologically based prediction equation for estimating motor fitness components in women and to find out the combined contribution of motor components and physiological variables to fitness ability besides developing a multiple regression equation for the prediction of fitness ability. Additional purpose was to find out the relationship of the selected motor components and physiological variables in predicting fitness status of women. Fifty female students of college going girls were selected as subjects for the study. The subjects were selected from Jai Narain Vyas University and Govt. College of Physical Education, Jodhpur. Rajasthan. Subjects were divided into two groups classified as: (A) sports women and (B) non-sports women, each group consist of twenty five women. Total twelve variables i.e. six physiological variables and six motor components were selected. Physiological variables included body density, vital capacity, blood pressure, breath holding capacity, hemoglobin. Pulse rate. Motor components included Cardio Vascular Endurance, Agility, Flexibility, Speed, Strength and Balance. Body density (percentage of body fat) was calculated from the skin fold measurements recorded at four sites of the body i.e Biceps, Triceps, sub-scapular and Supra- iliac with the help of skin fold caliper in millimeters. Peak flow rate was measured with the help of peak flow meter in liters. Blood pressure (systolic and diastolic) was measured by Doctor s Sphygmomano-meter in pulse pressure. Hemoglobin Percentage was measured with the help of Hemoglobinometer. Pulse rate (active pulse rate and resting pulse rate) was measured by stopwatch, neck, (In this area, an artery passes close to the skin.) in number of beats per minute. Breath holding capacity was measured with the help of nasal clip and stop watch in seconds. Speed was measured by the performance of 50 m dash in seconds. Agility was measured by 10 x 4 m shuttle run in seconds. Flexibility of lowe
