    Objective: We have recently conducted a physical exercise intervention program in the youth (PiPy) among a cohort of Chinese university students. The current study aimed to evaluate this program based upon the changes of body compositions and phase angle. Methods: A total of 772 students from in a university, China, were selected with a cluster sampling method. We conducted a cognition and physical exercise in PiPy and analyzed their exercise and ability. In the meanwhile, the changes of body compositions, including BMI, fat, skeletal muscle, phase angle and malnutrition rate were determined. Further analyses of these parameters in subgroups including lean, normal weight and over-weight were done. Results: After PiPy, BMI in all subjects was slightly increased, while fat weight and malnutrition rate were si.. View More»
