  1. Subjects' age, maturity, results of anthropometric measurements, and reported activity levels (average (SD)). P-values of t-test between the HG and ISG are presented. LBW – Lean Body Weight; BMI – Body Mass Index; Endomorph, Mesomorph, Ectomorph – somatotype scores calculated from the Heath-Carter method.
