Brief Summary:
This study is to find relation between number of repetitions the volunteer able to sit and stand in an armless chair and their age, height, weight and gender. The investigators hypothesis there is a moderate relation between anthropometric characteristics and number of situps. This may partially define the ability of functional capacity and quadriceps ability.

Condition or disease Intervention/treatment Phase
Human Healthy Volunteers Behavioral: Sit to stand test Early Phase 1

Detailed Description:
Sit to stand is gaining importance as a functional capacity measurement tool in modern chronic diseases arena. Bu the reference values for normative population is not available. Hence the present study aimed at finding relation between the anthropometric variables (age, height, weight) and number of sit to stand repetitions. The volunteers will be asked to sit to stand in an arm less chair of 40 inches height. The number of repetition will be correlated and regression equations will be sought out relating number of repetitions and anthropometric variables through best fit regression equations

Arm Intervention/treatment
Experimental: Sit to stand test
One minute sit to stand in 40 inches armless chair. Fatigue, breathlessness and failure to maintain tempo will lead to decease the test
Behavioral: Sit to stand test
Subjects will be asked to sit to stand in 40 inches chair for 60 seconds.

Primary Outcome Measures :
  1. Number of repetitions of sit ups within 60 seconds [ Time Frame: baseline, 1.5 minutes ]

Secondary Outcome Measures :
  1. heart rate recovery (in seconds) [ Time Frame: 1 minute ]
  2. blood pressure (mmHg) [ Time Frame: baseline, 1 minute ]
  3. saturation (%) [ Time Frame: baseline, 0.5 minute, 1 minute ]
  4. Heart rate (beats/ min) [ Time Frame: baseline, 0.5 minute, 1 minute ]

Other Outcome Measures:
  1. Anthropometric variables [ Time Frame: Baseline ]
    Age, height, weight of the volunteers
