Abstract: The objective of the present study was to establish comparisons among the bone mineral content (BMC), the total bone mineral density (TOTAL BMD) and located bone mineral density (BMD) in the different corporal segments, training apprentices with weights of young male adults and sedentary young male adults. The sample was constituted by 23 individuals that were divided in training group (TG; n=12; 24.17 ± 2.69 years; 72.90 ± 8.81 kg; 176.48 ± 6.69 cm) and sedentary group (SG; n=11; 24.09 ± 2.55 years; 71.22 ± 10.77 kg; 177.63 ± 7.13 cm).The bone component was analyzed through the technique Dual-energy x-ray absorptiometry (DEXA). For comparison of the analyzed parameters was used the test "t" of Student for independent samples (p<0,05). The BMC, total BMD, lower-body BMD, trunk BMD, rib BMD and column BMD, were larger significantly to TG compared to SG (p<0,05). However, for the values of upper-body BMD and pelvis BMD, they were not found significant differences between TG and SG (p>0,05). In agreement with the results, we can suggest that the weights training contributes to increase of the bone tissue what can minimize the effects of the bone loss process with moving forward of the age. © Copyright Moreira Jr. Editora.
