To identify the factors associated with greater bone density among athletic individuals, we recruited three distinct groups of young male subjects. Twenty were nationally ranked water polo players, 19 were engaged in weight-training programs, and 20 subjects comprised a nonexercising comparison group. All participants had measurements of spinal trabecular and integral bone density by quantitative computed tomography as well as a determination of hip bone density by dual photon absorptiometry.
