Is BMI a misleading proxy for adiposity in longitudinal studies with adolescent males?

Research output: Contribution to journalEditorial

Abstract

Telford and colleagues lead off with the first of this month’s featured articles, suggesting that, in adolescent males, an increased BMI in longitudinal studies may actually be associated with a decreased percentage of body fat. In the second featured article, Levy, Lucas and Hope report a pilot study indicating that platelet rich plasma has no impact on proximal hamstring tendonopathy clinical outcomes. In the third feature article, McKean’s group suggest that nutritional knowledge is limited in Australian registered exercise professionals
