Anthropometric and functional characteristics of phisically active individuals

"In order to determine their health status and physical fitness, studies were carried out in 57 women and 60 men, aged between 45 and 77 years, registered in a physical activity program in Cali, Colombia. We report the results of the anthropometric and functional tests. Measurements of weight a...
