Brief Summary:
This study aimed to analyze the accuracy of different anthropometric equations to estimate skeletal muscle mass in professional male soccer players, setting dual-energy x-ray absorptiometry (DXA) skeletal muscle mass as the reference.

Condition or disease Intervention/treatment
Body Composition Other: No intervention

Detailed Description:

The study consisted of evaluating anthropometric measurements and body composition with DXA in professional male soccer player aged 18 years and older. Standardized and certified personnel carried out anthropometric measurements and DXA whole body scan the same day.

Skeletal muscle mass was estimated with several anthropometric equations. The reference skeletal muscle mass was obtained assessing appendicular lean soft tissue from a whole-body DXA scan and then transformed into skeletal muscle mass with Kim equation (2002).

The estimated skeletal muscle mass from anthropometric equations was compared with DXA, and those with non-significant differences were further analyzed for calculating mean differences and 95% limits of agreement with DXA. This analysis was carried out for all equations.
