, beneficial bone effects of exercise were not always accompanied by greater weight gain in preterm infants ( 17 ), implying that this mechanism cannot fully explain the effect of exercise on body weight. Other body composition changes such as increased lean body mass or changes in metabolism/food absorption

assist in training harder, gaining lean body mass, or maintaining lean mass during periods of immobilization after injury ( Branch, 2003 ; Gualano et al., 2012 ; Heaton et al., 2017 ). Decisions on supplement use therefore need to consider both the context of use and the specific protocol employed

proper form and technique were used throughout the set. Measurements Height and seated height were measured to the nearest 0.1 cm using a stadiometer (Ellard Instruments, Monroe WA, USA), with no shoes and light clothes. Body mass (kg) as well as body composition including lean body mass, fat mass, and

, researchers have looked at other activities such as soccer, basketball, and ice hockey, concluding that female athletes may be at a greater risk for concussion than males ( Dick, 2009 ). This might be a result of differences in lean body mass, head mass, strength of the neck muscles, or physiological

, fat mass; LBM, lean body mass; VO 2 peak, peak oxygen uptake. Preliminary Procedures Participant height, body mass, and body composition (dual-energy X-ray absorptiometry scan; LG–Luna Prodigy, GE Medical Systems, Waukesha, WI) were measured. Participants then completed a peak-oxygen-uptake ( V ˙ O 2

detect changes in muscle mass. By using other means of measuring changes in body composition (eg, dual-energy X-ray absorptiometry), we may have detected changes in muscle mass. In a recent study by Jessen et al, 9 they observed a significant increase in lean body mass of 1.03–1.04 kg as detected by
