Abstract: Overview: Increasing rate of sedentary lifestyles, results in the once strong Core muscles to progressively become more inactive, which negatively impinges weakened lumbar core stability in many individuals. Thus, this study was been conducted to assess and compare the strength of core muscles in sedentary females using Whole Body Vibration Training (WBVT). Methods:For this study 30 female sedentary participants were selected from Pravara Institute of Medical Sciences, Loni, Assessment was done using Kraus Weber Muscular Strength Test, Waist and Hip Circumference followed by Group A receiving WBVT for 6times a week for 4 weeks, with 5 different positions for 10minutes while group B was the controlled group receiving no intervention. The pre and post results were then interpreted using instat graph pad. Results:Increase in the core strength with mild reduction in the Waist and Hip circumference in the WBVT group. Conclusion:Significant improvement in the core strength.
