therapy should be prioritized. Although previously, reduced BMD was detected only when it led to the first bone fracture (ie, osteoporosis), today a person’s BMD can be measured accurately and reliably using bone densitometry (dual-energy X-ray absorptiometry). 11 – 13 Dual-energy X-ray absorptiometry

Participants underwent preintervention BFlh architectural and body composition (by whole-body dual-energy X-ray absorptiometry) assessments as well as VO 2 peak, leg press, knee extension, and bench press 1-repetition maximum (1RM) testing. Participants met with a dietitian fortnightly for consultation

The intra-assay coefficient of variation of dual-energy X-ray absorptiometry was 1.9% for both fat mass and lean mass. Waist circumference was measured using a tape measure with
