Abstract

Physiological and anthropometric measures were taken in a group of young women, mean age = 16.2 years, who had been training regularly by running approximately 50 miles per week for 2 years. Their mean VO max of 63.24 ml/kg min is among the highest ever recorded in a group of young women. Anthropometric measures included: Selected segment lengths, diameters, skinfolds, and circumferences. These young women appear to be of average height, low in body weight and subcutaneous body fat, have a high component of ectomorphy, and a smaller overall skeletal framework thannonathletes. © 1979 Taylor 8 Francis Group, LLC. 2 -1
