Abstract
Introduction
In Sports scenario, musculoskeletal performance assessment is critical in the analysis of physical training programs in order to prioritize goals for decreasing injury risk and focusing performance goals. Abdominal endurance as part of the analysis & for injury prevention program is often assessed with techniques that have validity & that has been debated in literature. The purpose of this study was to develop normative data & sports specific norms for a trunk stabilization and muscular endurance by using a prone plank & side plank test in Indian Elite Taekwondo Players.

The study was descriptive with comparative in fraction. There were total 60 Taekwondo players (30 Male: 14.94 3.2956 years, 158.42 31.0621 cm, 44.34 14.7174 kg, 30 Female: 15.20 1.7889 years, 158.77 5.2040 cm, 48.27 7.3505) participated in the study and thorough explanation was given about procedure of both prone plank & side plank tests.
Results
We found significant difference in abdominal muscle endurance between male & female elite Taekwondo players at p<0.05 using two tailed unpaired t test for both tests with more holding time for male elite Taekwondo player. (Prone plank: mean SD; 36.61 10.7282 second vs. 26.67 7.5539 second, Side Plank Rt: mean SD; 4.62 6.9365 second vs. 16.16 4.885, Side Plank Lt: mean SD; 22.96 7.8411 second vs. 17.33 5.1245)

Conclusion
These data provides the Sports Physiotherapist with reference value for core muscle endurance holding time & also signifies difference in performance of all core muscle endurance tests for male & female Indian elite taekwondo players.
