OBJECTIVE To examine the independent associations of muscular and cardiorespiratory fitness with clustered metabolic risk in adolescents. METHODS Participants were 709 adolescents (346 boys) from 10 European centers, aged 12.5-17.5 yr, evaluated as a part of the Healthy Lifestyle in Europe by Nutrition in Adolescents cross-sectional study (HELENA-CSS). A muscular fitness score was computed using handgrip strength and standing long jump. Cardiorespiratory fitness was measured using the 20-m… CONTINUE READING
