A 12-month continuous and intermittent high-impact exercise intervention and its effects on bone mineral density in postmenopausal women: a feasibility randomised controlled trial (2020)
Journal Article
Abt, G. (in press). A 12-month continuous and intermittent high-impact exercise intervention and its effects on bone mineral density in postmenopausal women: a feasibility randomised controlled trial. Journal of Sports Medicine and Physical Fitness,

BACKGROUND: Intermittent mechanical loading generates greater bone adaptations than continuous mechanical loading in rodents but has never been evaluated in humans. This study aimed to evaluate the feasibility of a continuous and intermittent counter...
