Note. n = 29, n = 22; denotes that correlation is significant at the 0.01 level; denotes that correlation is significant at the 0.05 level. BMI represents body mass index. Calcium intake was estimated as mg/day. Weight training and run training were measured in min/wk. Salivary cortisol was measured in nmol/L. BMD was measured as g/cm2.
