Abstract: In the present study, an attempt has been made to find out the relationship between adjustment
level and Health related physical fitness in different socio-economic status of secondary boy's
students. Total85 boys were selected for the study. Two higher secondary schools of South 24
Paraganas district in West Bengal were selected for the study. In this study the adjustment level
has considered as independent variable and Health Related Physical Fitness (HRPF) considered
as dependent variable. The data was collected by adjustment level questionnaires of Sinha &
Singhand Socio economic status was measured by Kuppuswamy questionnaire of 1918. In health
related physical fitnessBMI was measured by Weight/Height2
, Upper Body Strength Endurance
measured by no. of push-ups, Abdominal Strength Endurance measured by no. of curl-ups,
Flexibility measured by V-sit and reach test and Cardio Respiratory Endurance measured by
1500 meters run/walk test. The data were analyzed with the help of statistical procedures through
mean, standard deviation, and correlation coefficient.Adjustment level of lower middle class had
a positive but not significant correlation with Cardio Respiratory Endurance (r = 0.355), negative
but not significant correlation found with flexibility (r =-0.306). WithUpper Body Strength
Endurance (r = -0.306), Abdominal Strength Endurance (r = -0.205) and BMI (r = -0.368)
negative but not significant correlations were found. Adjustment level of upper lower class with
Cardio Respiratory Endurance and Abdominal Strength Endurance bears very weak and not
significant positive correlation (r = 0.020 and 0.048) and negative but not significant relation
were found in case of Flexibility (r = -0.031), Upper Body Strength Endurance (r = -0.034) and
BMI (r = -0.216). It has concluded that adjustment level and Health Related Physical Fitness
components were not significantly correlated with each other.
