amean differences are significant; b‘Greenhouse-Geisser’ correction procedure was used; cPillai-Spur, Wilks-Lambda, Hotelling-Spur and ‘biggest characteristical root of Roy’. ANOVA, analysis of variance; LE, lower extremities; SAST, somatic adipose soft tissue; SLT, somatic lean tissue; TR, trunk; TV, total volume; UE, upper extremities.

Bold numbers mark the prefered P-value of the prevered ANOVA regarding sphericity assumption proven by Mauchly-Test.
