The purposes were to:
(a) develop and cross-validate a prediction equation for body density with leisure time physical activity (LTA) serving as a potential predictor, and (b) determine whether the addition of LTA to previously published regression equations would improve their prediction.
Body density (hydrostatic weighing) was measured in a validation group of 193 men (18-78 years), and was predicted by age, body mass index, subscapular skinfold, abdominal skinfold, thigh skinfold, waist circumference, and LTA.
This equation cross-validated on an independent group of men (n=96).
