Table 2 Baseline and percent (%) fat and strength change in FAMUSS cohort with resistance training

From: INSIG2 gene polymorphism is associated with increased subcutaneous fat in women and poor response to resistance training in men

Phenotype Arm Females (N = 320) mean ± SD Males (N = 197) mean ± SD
Baseline subcutaneous fat volume (mm3) Trained 257641 ± 116264 172577 ± 90778
  Untrained 260186 ± 120065* 176227 ± 97396
Subcutaneous fat volume gained with training (mm3) Trained 5900 ± 31141 4368 ± 24211
  Untrained 3668 ± 29388* 312 ± 29076
  1. * N = 319 due to one missing MRI phenotype in females
