- Age- and sex-standardised lean and fat indices derived from bioelectrical impedance analysis for ages 7-11 years: functional associations with cardio-respiratory fitness and grip strengthAndrea Sherriff
Division of Developmental Medicine, 9th Floor, University of Glasgow Dental School, 378 Sauchiehall Street, Glasgow G3 8SJ, UK
Br J Nutr 101:1753-60. 2009..26, 0.32), rgirls 0.26 (95 % CI 0.23, 0.29)). BMI showed slightly weaker associations, while fat index was unrelated to either CRF or grip strength. Lean indices relate to muscle function and fitness while fat index does not...
