UNLABELLED High levels of lean mass are important in collision-based sports for the development of strength and power, which may also assist during contact situations. While skinfold-based measures have been shown to be appropriate for cross-sectional assessments of body composition, their utility in tracking changes in lean mass is less clear. PURPOSE To determine the most effective method of quantifying changes in lean mass in rugby league athletes. METHODS Body composition of 21… CONTINUE READING
