Abstract
Background: Balance is an essential component for the overall physical performance among individuals.
Objectives: The purpose of this study was to investigate and to compare the static balance ability, in terms of endurance time, during trunk stability push-up and during deep squat.
Method and Materials: Twenty three healthy physical therapy students, aged between 20 and 23 years, were recruited from college of medical rehabilitation to participate in the study. The physical therapy testers demonstrated the activity to the participants. Every participant had to maintain his balance as long as tolerated during deep squat and during doing push-up while maintaining the trunk stable. The order of measurement was counterbalanced.
Results: The mean score, in seconds, for trunk stability push-up was 49.57 (SD=22.07), and the mean score for deep squat was 52.83 (SD=24.60). No significant difference between trunk stability push-up and deep squat mean value, was found [ t (22)= -0.639, p >0.05]. Also, a moderate positive correlation was found [r (21) = 0.454, p <.05] indicating a significant linear relationship between the two variables.
Conclusions: There is diminished static balance endurance ability among healthy college students for both lower and upper body but there was no significant difference between them. Clinicians should recommend static balance training; like deep squat and push-up for promoting balance and stability of lower and upper body in healthy individuals.

Key words: Balance, posture, physical endurance, healthy participants, correlation.
