Gymnasts exhibit higher bone mass than runners despite similar prevalence of amenorrhea and oligomenorrhea
Female athletes exhibit a higher prevalence of exercise‐associated amenorrhea and oligomenorrhea compared with nonathletic women, and both conditions are related to reduced bone mineral densityExpand

High‐Impact Exercise Promotes Bone Gain in Well‐Trained Female Athletes
Maximizing peak bone mass, as well as reducing its loss after menopause, is important for the prevention of osteoporosis. One mode of activity, gymnastics training, invokes high impact loadingExpand

Differential effects of swimming versus weight‐bearing activity on bone mineral status of eumenorrheic athletes
To examine the role of skeletal loading patterns on bone mineral density (BMD), we compared eumenorrheic athletes who chronically trained by opposite forms of skeletal loading, intensiveExpand

Serum IGF-I is higher in gymnasts than runners and predicts bone and lean mass.
INTRODUCTION We examined the relationships between insulin-like growth factor I (IGF-I), its binding protein (IGFBP-3), body composition, and bone mineral density (BMD) in collegiate runners (N =Expand

Spine bone mineral density increases in experienced but not novice collegiate female rowers.
PURPOSE There is evidence that rowing exercise targets the spine, but the dose of exercise required to build bone is poorly understood. To further explore this topic, we studied the bone response atExpand

The Effects of Repeated Push Sled Sprints on Blood Lactate, Heart Rate Recovery and Sprint Times
Resisted sprinting devices have been examined for their effect on sprinting but there is limited research on sled pushing thus leaving a gap in the literature related to this topic. The current studyExpand
