The aim of present study was to study the relationship between selected physical fitness components and weight lifting skill performance of 17 to 20 year old males those who have at least state level participation in weight lifting in the last 3 years (i.e. 2015, 2016 and 2017). The study was conducted on 15 subjects (N=15) who had appeared in the skill and fitness testing for admission to a renowned central university of India. Pearson’s coefficient correlation and partial correlation was being used to analyse the data. A separate analysis of state and national level was also done using the Pearson’s coefficient correlation method. Overall significant correlation (r>.01 and r>.05) was observed for all the lifters on weight lifted in snatch, weight lifted in clean and jerk, number of valid push ups in 1 minute and for number of valid sit ups in 1 minute with one or more variables. No correlation was being observed on competition body weight, total weight lifted. However the partial correlation between SBJ and 1 minute push ups dropped drastically (r= .279) after controlling for 1 minute sit ups, therefore the correlation as observed was not real. Similarly the correlation between Standing broad jump and 1 minute sit –ups also dropped drastically (r=.366) after controlling for 1 minute push ups, therefore the correlation was not real.
