Constipation, a common gastrointestinal issue characterized by infrequent bowel movements or difficulty passing stools, can potentially impact various aspects of health beyond the digestive system. While its effects on factors like quality of life and gastrointestinal discomfort are well-documented, its influence on aerobic capacity in young adults remains an area warranting further exploration. Aerobic capacity, also known as cardiorespiratory fitness or maximal oxygen uptake (VO2 max), refers to the maximum amount of oxygen the body can utilize during intense exercise. Understanding the relationship between constipation and aerobic capacity is essential for optimizing health outcomes and performance in this demographic. Therefore, the primary objective of this research is to investigate the potential impact of constipation on aerobic capacity in young adults. Therefore, the study will incorporate comprehensive assessments of these variables to better understand their role in shaping the observed associations. This study include 74 young adults aged 20 to 25, both male and female. The result shows the weak negative correlation between the constipation and aerobic capacity in young adults. Our study revealed a weak negative correlation between constipation and aerobic capacity in young adults, it's crucial to contextualize these findings within the broader landscape of factors influencing physical fitness. The observed association suggests that individuals experiencing more severe constipation may exhibit slightly reduced aerobic fitness levels, and vice versa.
