fat (in kilograms) was determined from dual-energy X-ray absorptiometry (DPX-L version 1.3z; Lunar, Madison, WI). 25 Body fat percentage (%) was calculated as the quotient of body fat and total body mass, and used in the statistical analyses. Statistics Structural equation modeling, with observed

The authors previously found that creatine (Cr) combined with 12 weeks of resistance training enhanced muscle strength and endurance and lean tissue mass (LTM) in older men. Their purpose in this study was to assess these variables with cessation of Cr combined with 12 weeks of reduced training (33% lower volume) in a subgroup of these men (n = 8, 73 years old) compared with 5 men (69 years old) who did not receive Cr. Strength (1-repetition maximum [1-RM]), endurance (maximum number of repetitions over 3 sets at 70–80% 1-RM), and LTM (dual-energy X-ray absorptiometry) were assessed before and after 12 weeks of Cr cessation combined with reduced-volume training. No changes in strength or LTM occurred. Muscle endurance was significantly reduced (7–21%; p < .05), with the rate of change similar between groups. Withdrawal from Cr had no effect on the rate of strength, endurance, and loss of lean tissue mass with 12 weeks of reduced-volume training.

and fat mass by dual-energy X-ray absorptiometry; and measurement of resistance, reactance, and PhA by spectral bioelectrical impedance were performed. The posttraining measurements were performed at least 72 hr after the final RT session to avoid the acute effects of the last RT session. The other 12

X-ray absorptiometry (DPX-MD model; Lunar, Chalfont, United Kingdom) was used to assess BMD (g/cm 2 ) and bone mineral content (BMC; g). Dual-energy X-ray absorptiometry measures were performed in the morning after a light breakfast, and the scanner quality was tested by a trained researcher before

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

(∼35–40 years) exercise training program affects skeletal muscle and bone tissues. To this end, we compared dual-energy X-ray absorptiometry (DXA)-measured lean mass and BMD in male and female masters-level athletes (∼50 years of age with ∼10 years of training experience) with highly discrepant

. Measures of PA, the Knee Injury and Osteoarthritis Outcome Score (KOOS), the 6-min walk test (6MWT), the 30-s chair stand test (30CST), and dual-energy X-ray absorptiometry (DXA) were taken at baseline and at 3 and 12 months follow-up. PCS was used for inclusion and only measured at baseline. Figure 1 Flow
