  • Values are Pearson's product-moment correlation coefficients (r values) for relationships between changes in variables (Δ) during the 12-wk exercise training intervention. Because of the lack of group × time interactions in the majority of variables, it was assumed that the exercise training was driving the changes independent of caloric intake; therefore, the intervention groups were pooled for correlation analyses.

  • * Significant correlations: P < 0.05,

  • Raw plasma leptin concentration data were natural log transformed (in leptin) for statistical analysis.
