OBJECTIVE To investigate the effectiveness of a body mass reduction programme entailing diet caloric restriction and moderate physical activity with or without supplementary treatment with recombinant (r) GH or steroids to improve body composition and muscle performance in severely obese women aged 61-75 years. METHODS Twenty women were randomly assigned(More)
Acute plasma GH response to prolonged (1 h) near-maximal exercise was studied in 7 elite cyclists (6 males, 1 female; mean age +/- SE: 24.9 +/- 1.4 yr) during a routine training session on an uphill track (length: 22.0 km, average slope: 4.39%) and during a recovery (REC) period of 60 min from the end of exercise. The training session entailed a warming-up(More)
The aim of this study was to assess the effects on performance and work capacity of a short-term (3-week) integrated body weight reduction programme consisting of an energy-restricted diet, nutritional education, psychological counselling and aerobic exercise training at a constant metabolic load (5 days/week) in 71 severely obese patients (18 males and 53(More)
The aim of this study was to investigate the effects of a multidisciplinary body mass reduction (BMR) program on body composition, muscle function and motor performance in 50 obese [mean body mass index (BMI): 35.9+/-5.8 kg/m2] boys and girls aged 12-17 yr (Tanner stage III, IV and V). The hospital-based BMR program combined an energy-restricted diet(More)
