PURPOSE The aim of this study was to investigate BMD in Danish female elite gymnasts and the relationships to maximal muscle strength, sex hormone concentrations, and menstrual status. METHODS Six artistic gymnasts, five rhythmic gymnasts, and six controls aged 15-20 yr served as subjects. BMD (g x cm(-2)) of lumbar spine, proximal femur, distal radius, and whole body were measured by dual-energy x-ray absorptiometry (DXA) scanning. Maximal muscle strength (Nm) was measured in isokinetic… CONTINUE READING
