Fifty-five men and 28 women were tested at age 16 and retested at age 27. Muscle biopsies were taken from m. vastus lateralis to analyse fibre types, fibre areas and enzyme contents. A cycle ergometer test to was used to estimate the maximal oxygen uptake. Physical performance was assessed in an endurance test, where the subjects had to run as far as possible in 9 min on a 400-m track, and in three strength tests designed to test maximal dynamic strength (Sargent jump) and maximal static… CONTINUE READING
