exercise research, yet the rigor of the traditional, perhaps less costly measures of bone parameters such as dual-energy X-ray absorptiometry continue to provide insight into the sustainability of the responsiveness of bone to exercise over prolonged periods of time ( 6 , 7 ). Some of the bone

The use of clinical measurements of total body fat using dual energy x-ray absorptiometry and abdominal fat using magnetic resonance imaging, as well as clinical laboratory measurements of other risk factors, is a marked strength of the study. Another key
