The aim of the current study was to compare compression strength index (CSI), bending strength index (BSI) and impact strength index (ISI) among obese, overweight and normal-weight young women. 117 young women (20 obese, 36 overweight and 61 normal-weight) whose ages range from 18 to 35 years participated in this study. Body composition and BMD were evaluated by dual-energy X-ray absorptiometry (DXA). CSI, BSI and ISI values were significantly lower in obese and overweight women compared to normal-weight women (p < 0.001). In the whole population (n = 117), body mass index (BMI) was negatively correlated to CSI (r = −0.66; p < 0.001), BSI (r = −0.56; p < 0.001) and ISI (r = −0.54; p < 0.001). This study suggests that obesity is associated with lower CSI, BSI and ISI values in young women.
