The effects of bicycle exercise on specific anthropometric and physiological measures were observed in two test subjects (S1 and S2) over a twelve week exercise period. The two subjects, one male (S1) and one female (S2) participated in a graduated bicycle exercise : Donald Martin Pedersen.

INTRODUCTION. Anthropometric characteristics of an individual athlete are considered to be an important determinant of success in sport. In German sport history, especially in the autocratic sports policy during the communistic regimen of the former German Democratic Republic, anthropometric measurements were used to define physiological characteristics for specific sports, e.g.

Some anthropometric variables, such as body mass, are directly related to postural balance; however, the majority of works evaluate specific groups, such as obese adolescents, the elderly [1, 10, 11], and athletes.

Yet few studies have reported on individuals with normal body mass or overweight who were subjected to conditions of by:   Anthropometric measurements. Anthropometric measures were obtained for 94%, 94% and 93% of male participants and for 96%, 93% and 95% of women for weight, waist circumference and height respectively.

Our results indicate that height and weight are the only measures sufficiently reliable to be used in future analyses in this study.

The reliability of these measurements, and indirectly of BMI, is reassuring since BMI is a useful tool to detect chronic energy deficiency[4, 38] and has also been proposed as an indicator of HIV progression in developing countries [].Cited by: Anthropometry is the primary focus of growth studies, so it is essential for the measurements to be of the highest possible quality.

Anthropometric information per se is non−specific and does not identify the causes of growth failure. Anthropometry's usefulness stems from its close correlation with the multiple dimensions of individual health and development and their socio−economic and environmental determinants.

Anthropometry (from Greek ἄνθρωπος anthropos, 'human', and μέτρον metron, 'measure') refers to the measurement of the human early tool of physical anthropology, it has been used for identification, for the purposes of understanding human physical variation, in paleoanthropology and in various attempts to correlate physical with racial and psychological traits.

Adolescence overweight and obesity have increased considerably, and the misperception of their weight status could reduce the efficiency of intervention programs.
