Abstract

The purpose of this study was to investigate the relationship between physical activity and lumber bone mineral density (LBMD) in collegiate women. The subjects were divided into 3 groups: 13 volleyball players (V Group), 11 tennis players (T Group), and 12 sedentary controls. The V Group showed significantly higher mean LBMD than the other 2 groups. There were no significant differences among 3 groups in nutrient and food intakes, except vitamin K. The results indicate that playing volleyball is more likely to increase LBMD than playing tennis.
