The aim of the study to develop regression equation on basis of Body weight, Height and Age to predict the Total Body water. Further to find out correlation among selected Independent variables (Body Weight, Height and Age) with Dependent Variable (Total Body water),to study the joint contribution of Independent Variables in estimating Total Body water. Fifty male university players male from LN.I.P.E,N.E.R.C, Guwahati, Assam. The age ranged from 20 to 27 were selected for this study. To achieve the objective of present study, Pearson’s Product Moment correlation and multiple correlations was used. Regression equation (Enter method) was established for predicting Dependent variable on the basis of Independent variables. There exists a significant relationship between Total Body water Body weight (.728), Height (.429), Age (-.382).In regression mode , the value of R2[0.606(Body weight, Height, Age)] developed for prediction of Total Body water. The resulting regression equation is Total Body water = 19.444 + 0.310 (Body weight) + 0.073 (Height) - 0.583 (Age)
