  1. *Multivariable model in which all independent variables were entered simultaneously, in addition to being adjusted by age, pubertal stage and gender.%BF = percentage of body fatness; VO2peak = peak oxygen uptake; Alcohol = number of drinks per week; Cigarettes = number of cigarettes per week. Statistical significance was set at p < 5%.
