Abstract

Many assessments of nutritional status using the body mass index (BMI) indicators that are carried out on athletes produce high BMI scores so that these athletes are considered to have over weight or obesity. Body weight is an indicator of body composition which includes the proportion of fat mass and fat-free mass including muscle mass, water, and bone. This study suggests cross-checking the results of anthropometric using the BMI indicator with other indicators, namely the percent body fat mass or the circumference ratio based on height. The cross-sectional design was used. The sample consisted of 118 student athletes who were under the Student Education and Training Center (PPLP). Measurements were made using body weight, height and fat-free mass. The results showed that there is a significant relationship between the percentage of body fat content and the BMI which is indicated by a p value <0.05.
