New findings in Sports Science

César Al Khoury has successfully defended his PhD dissertation titled “ Déterminants de la résistance osseuse chez des jeunes hommes en surpoids et obèses : Identification et effets de deux programmes longitudinaux d’entraînement physique (force vs. endurance)”. The dissertation was prepared under the co-tutorship agreement between the University of Balamand and the University of Orléans, France. It was supervised by Dr. Rawad El Hage - University of Balamand, and Professor Hechmi Toumi - University of Orléans. Some of the findings of this thesis were published in the Journal of Clinical Densitometry (Impact Factor: 3.24), La revue du Rhumatologie, Science et sports and Kinésithéparie, la revue.

Dr. El Hage, Chairperson of the Physical Education Department, declared that he is very satisfied with the results of Dr. El Khoury’s research. In brief, the research showed that resistance training is an effective method to decrease fat mass, to increase bone mineral density and to enhance geometric indices of hip bone strength and trabecular bone score in young overweight and obese men. ​
