OBJECTIVE To evaluate if exercise in a young growing model of obesity would be able to reduce adiposity without adversely affecting bone. METHODS Obese (fa/fa) and lean (Fa/Fa) male Zucker rats were randomly assigned (n=8-9 rats/group) to no exercise or to a moderate treadmill exercise regimen consisting of a speed of 20 m/min for approximately 1 h, 5 d/wk for 9 wks. Bone morphometry, total bone ash, and bone strength by three-point bending test were determined in the femur and the tibia… CONTINUE READING
