Medicine and Science in Sports and Exercise
We appreciate the comments of Dr. Falk and Mr. Dotan and would like to respond to their concerns. As we indicate in the discussion of our article (1), we realize that changes in maturation and body composition can affect the assessment of VO2max. However, we do not feel that the change in VO2peak observed in the subjects that improved VO2peak was primarily related to a reduction in body weight.
