This study was conducted aiming to determine the relationship between handgrip strength with various elbow angle and the upper and lower body strength score. 200 university active female were recruited as study participants and performed the 1RM test for bench press and squat. 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 dominant hand and full flexion at non-dominant 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 active female.

Hand grip strength is always consider as an overall indicator of physical strength, muscle performance, functional index of nutritional status, bone mineral content, functional integrity of upper extremity of hand and forearm musculature. It is judged as one of the major reliable tool used in clinical setting for estimating hand-grip strength. As a physiological variable it can be influenced by a number of factors such as age, gender, height, weight and various anthropometric traits.
