Dengel publishes in the Journal of Sports Medicine

Donald R. Dengel, PhD, professor in the School of Kinesiology and director of the Laboratory of Integrative Human Physiology, recently co-authored an article, “Body composition and visceral adipose tissue in female collegiate equestrian athletes,” in the International Journal of Sports Medicine. The study discovered that equestrian riders have less fat mass and more muscle mass in their legs suggesting the influence of horseback riding on leg development.

Olivia Dengel, graduate from the College of Saint Benedict, was the lead author of the publication. Christiana Raymond-Pope, PhD, post-doctoral associate, and Tyler Bosch, PhD, graduates from the School, were also co-authors of the article.
