The aim of this study was firstly to investigate the correlation between bone parameters and grip strength (GS) in hands, explosive legs power (ELP), and hormonal parameters; second, to identify the most determinant variables of bone mineral density (BMD) among adolescent combat sport athletes. Fifty combat sport athletes aged 17.1±0.2yr were compared with 30 sedentary subjects matched for age, height, and pubertal stage. For all subjects, the BMD in deferent sites associated with anthropometric parameters were measured by dual-energy X-ray absorptiometry. The growth hormone (GH) and testosterone (TESTO) concentrations were tested. The GS in dominant (GSDA) and nondominant arms (GSNDA) and ELP were evaluated. All BMD measured were greater in athletes than in sedentary group (p<0 .01=".01" all="all" and="and" arms="arms" athletes="athletes" best="best" bmd="bmd" body="body" both="both" but="but" class="highlight" combat="combat" correlated="correlated" correlation="correlation" effect="effect" elp="elp" especially="especially" gh="gh" group="group" gs="gs" gsnda.="gsnda." gsnda="gsnda" has="has" height.="height." higher="higher" in="in" is="is" legs.="legs." measurements="measurements" nbsp="nbsp" of="of" only="only" osteogenic="osteogenic" p="p" practice="practice" predictor="predictor" proved="proved" sedentary="sedentary" showed="showed" significantly="significantly" sites="sites" span="span" spine="spine" sports="sports" study="study" style="border: 0px; font-size: 13px; font: inherit; margin: 0px; padding: 0px; vertical-align: baseline;" testo="testo" than="than" the="the" this="this" values="values" was="was" weight="weight" were="were" whole="whole" with="with" without="without">judo
