Abstract
Objective: To find Physical activity (PA) for Metabolic Equivalent Task (MET), in undergraduate students using IPAQ.
Methodology: This cross-sectional study was conducted on students of Faculty of Allied Health Sciences, The University of Lahore. We included 174 (71 males and 103 females) students in the study. Ages of students were from 19 to 26 years. Information about three specific types of activities (walking, moderate intensity, and vigorous-intensity) was asked in IPAQ.
Results: Physical activity was significantly associated with functional capacity (p=0.00). PA was directly proportional to functional capacity. As PA increased, functional capacity also increased. No significant difference was observed among METs score regarding gender (p=0.326).
Conclusion: Metabolic equivalent task and physical activity and functional capacity were low in medical students of University.

Key words: Metabolic Equivalent task, physical activity, students,
