The present study was designed to examine the effect of exercise on femoral neck bone structure and strength in female rats after 4 and 10 months of exercise. Female Fischer rats aged 2 months were exercised for 4 h a day, 5 days a week on a motor-driven treadmill the speed of which was gradually increased until a daily distance of 2 km was reached. The training level was maintained for 4 months (n = 15) and 10 months (n = 15). Sedentary age-matched rats served as controls (n = 30). At death… CONTINUE READING
