Quick Reference

A hypothesis based on the suggestion that changes of muscle strength are proportional to the muscle's diameter and thus to the square of body height (BH)2 and that changes of body mass (BM) are proportional to (BM)3, thus muscular strength is proportional to (BM)2/3, i.e. (BM)0.667.
