Table 1 Subject characteristics at the period of stability, prior to competition, and respective changes.

From: Accuracy of DXA in estimating body composition changes in elite athletes using a four compartment model as the reference method

N = 27 Period of Stability Prior to Competition Changes
  Mean ± SD Mean ± SD Mean ± SD
Age (yrs) 22.2 ± 2.8   
Stature (m) 1.76 ± 0.05   
Weight (kg) 72.8 ± 7.1 72.0 ± 6.9 -0.87 ± 1.93
BMI (kg/m2) 23.6 ± 2.3 23.4 ± 2.2 -0.28 ± 0.64
  1. Abbreviations: BMI: body mass index;
  2. *Changes are calculated as: prior to competition minus period of stability
