Biomarkers associated with low, moderate, and high vastus lateralis muscle hypertrophy following 12 weeks of resistance training

Fig 2

Pre and post-training VL thickness and DXA lean body mass values between clusters.

Legend: All clusters presented with increases in VL thickness following resistance training (*, p<0.05) (panel a), although PRE levels were greater in LOW versus HI (p = 0.014) and POST levels were greater in HI versus LOW (#, p = 0.006). Panel b depicts PRE- to POST-training changes in DXA lean body mass (LBM), whereby only a time effect was observed (p<0.001). Data are presented as individual respondent values, bar graph values indicate group mean values, and mean ± standard deviation values are presented below each bar.
