PURPOSE Skeletal muscle (SM), which is found mainly within the appendicular lean soft tissue (ALST) compartment, is a biological important body compartment. Simple and accurate methods to estimate both SM and ALST remain difficult to obtain. We aimed to develop and to cross-validate anthropometric models for ALST in athletes, using dual-energy x-ray absorptiometry (DXA) as the reference method. METHODS ALST equations were developed in 176 athletic boys (15.0 +/- 2.8 yr; 64.5 +/- 15.8 kg; 1.72… CONTINUE READING
