The purposes of this study were to assess level of visceral fat in relation to regular sport participation and to examine its relationship to subcutaneous fat and body composition measured by dual-energy x-ray absorptiometry (DEXA) in young male soccer players and non-athletes. Furthermore another purpose of this study was to develop population specific equations for estimating body fat percentage of male soccer players by using anthropometric measurements.One hundred one 17 to 21 years old males (51 athletes and 50 non-athletes) voluntarily participated in this study. The athletes were soccer players who had been training regularly for at least five years. Anthropometric measurements including stature, body mass, circumference, breath and skinfold thickness measurements were obtained from each subject. Fat mass, fat free mass (FFM) and body fat percentage (BF%) were measured by DEXA.
