  1. Leisure time physical activity is a significant predictor of body density in men.

    Article - En anglais

    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).
