mass in various body compartments by dual-energy X-ray absorptiometry (DXA) provides a good index of metabolic and CVD consequences of obesity. 22 However, anthropometric indices also have clinical relevance, compared with general obesity measures alone, in screening for CVD in women, 23 including

To strengthen the depth of lightweight rowing talent, we sought to identify experienced heavyweight rowers who possessed physique traits that predisposed them to excellence as a lightweight. Identified athletes (n = 3) were monitored over 16 wk. Variables measured included performance, anthropometric indices, and selected biochemical and metabolic parameters. All athletes decreased their body mass (range 2.0 to 8.0 kg), with muscle mass accounting for a large proportion of this (31.7 to 84.6%). Two athletes were able to maintain their performance despite reductions in body mass. However, performance was compromised for the athlete who experienced the greatest weight loss. In summary, smaller heavyweight rowers can successfully make the transition into the lightweight category, being nationally competitive in their first season as a lightweight.

, studies have rarely examined the effects of plyometric conditioning on anthropometric indices, even though changes in lean body mass (ie, muscle mass) and body fat percentage could positively affect volleyball performance ( 23 , 26 , 29 ). Skill-based conditioning is another popular training method in

(intercept-only model intraclass correlation coefficient = .61). The influence of the different anthropometric indices was also tested. Step rate, weight-related variables (weight, BMIz, and waist circumference), and maturity offset were significant ( P  < .01) predictors of METs. However, age- and height
