Agreement Among Resting Metabolic Rate Assessments within Resistance Trained Females

The purpose of this study is to examine if a new piece of equipment (KORR-MetaCheck) used to assess the amount of kilocalories your body needs at rest is reliable and valid compared to a traditional piece of equipment (Parvo Medics True One) that is considered to be the gold standard. Additionally, we hope to examine how accurate kilocalorie values from several popular prediction equations and body composition assessments are compared to actual measured values. Finally, we want to establish a new and improved prediction equation for resistance trained females using anthropometric measurements such as height, weight, etc.
