Table 1 Comparison of body composition variables between heavyweight and nonheavyweight groups

From: Characteristics of body composition and cardiometabolic risk of Japanese male heavyweight Judo athletes

   Heavyweight Nonheavyweight P value
   (n = 41) (n = 17)
Height (cm) 177.4 ± 5.7 175.6 ± 3.9 0.218
Body mass (kg) 110.0 ± 16.0 78.9 ± 5.0 <0.001
BMI (kg/m2) 35.0 ± 4.9 25.6 ± 1.9 <0.001
Total fat percentage (%) 23.2 ± 6.0 13.0 ± 2.6 <0.001
  fat mass (kg) 26.2 ± 10.1 10.3 ± 2.6 <0.001
  fat free mass (kg) 83.8 ± 8.1 68.5 ± 3.4 <0.001
Waist circumference (cm) 103 ± 10 82 ± 4 <0.001
VF (cm2) 91 ± 39 33 ± 14 <0.001

  1. Data were expressed as mean ± SD. BMI body mass index, VF visceral fat area, SF subcutaneous fat area; *Log-transformed variables for non-normally distributed variables (body mass, total fat mass, VF) were used. P value for difference between heavyweight Judo and football groups was assessed by unpaired t test. Significant differences, P < 0.05
