considerable exposure to radiation or may be considered invasive in some cultures. Therefore, more recently dual-energy X-ray absorptiometry has been used as an alternative to the X-ray method ( 25 ) as it only exposes participants to one-tenth of the radiation dose ( 9 ) or about 0.001 mSv, with the average

-body dual-energy X-ray absorptiometry (DXA) scan. After the body-composition assessments, the subjects completed a familiarization session for the CP 3-minute all-out test (CP 3MT ). The second visit involved the determination of CP and AWC from the CP 3MT . CP was defined as the mean power output over the
