OBJECTIVE To analyze the effect of biological maturation on training-induced strength and endurance adaptations in the prepubertal growth spurt. METHODS One hundred and twenty-five healthy children (58 boys, 67 girls), aged 10-11 years old (10.8 ± 0.4 years), who were self-assessed as belonging to Tanner stages I and II, were randomly divided into two… CONTINUE READING
