received the score “0” for monthly training load because all adolescents reported no engagement in organized sports outside of school during the 30 consecutive days. Body Composition Variables Fat mass (kg), LST (kg), and BMD (g/cm 2 ) were assessed using dual-energy X-ray absorptiometry (Lunar DPX-NT; GE

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

tomography (pQCT), objective measures of PA, and a clear measure of physical development ( 9 , 13 ). Historically, bone research was completed using measures of bone mass and density (via dual-energy X-ray absorptiometry [DXA]). Research shows, however, the importance of bone structure, in addition to mass

using the Kaufman Brief Intelligence Test-2. Participants were excluded from analysis for incomplete body composition data (n = 2, incomplete dual-energy X-ray absorptiometry scan) and activity data (n = 6, improper/insufficient wear). An additional 6 participants were excluded as outliers as they were

assessing changes in body composition using dual-energy X-ray absorptiometry (DXA). It was reported that 2.5 kg of absolute body fat was the lowest achievable fat mass without unacceptable losses of lean muscle mass, along with such severe food cravings that the study could not continue. Indeed, when 2.5 kg

. Anthropometry and Bone Health Assessment Bone health and body composition were assessed using dual-energy X-ray absorptiometry (DXA; Lunar Prodigy Pro; GE Medical Systems, Madison, WI). Bone mineral density (BMD) was determined for whole body, lumbar spine (L1–L4), total left hip, and neck. Normal BMD was
