Low ponderal index is associated with decreased muscle strength and fatigue resistance in college-aged women.

Abstract

Poor fetal growth is associated with decrements in muscle strength likely due to changes during myogenesis. We investigated the association of poor fetal growth with muscle strength, fatigue resistance, and the response to training in the isolated quadriceps femoris. Females (20.6 years) born to term but below the 10th percentile of ponderal index (PI)-for… (More)
