dc.description.abstractIt has been theorized that muscles generate more force on bone than body weight alone and therefore it is likely that muscle contraction drives and sustains bone adaptation (Frost 1999). Purpose: To investigate the relationship between the timing and tempo of peak growth velocities of lean tissue (LT) and bone mineral content (BMC) in boys and girls at three sites using data derived from individual growth curves. Methods: 72 boys and 70 girls were fitted with growth curves that had a distinguishable peak. Height and weight were measured for each participant and tissue assessment was performed annually using DXA. Factorial ANOVAs were completed to analyse data for differences in age, while forward regression analyses was used between LT and BMC. Results: The peak growth velocity for lean occurred significantly (Pen_US
