Air Force cadets’ nutrition knowledge linked to success in gravitational acceleration test, study finds

A recent study published in Scientific Reports examined the relationship between nutrition knowledge, physical strength and activity, and body composition among Air Force cadets and their ability to pass the Gravitational Acceleration Test. Results indicated that cadets who passed the test had better nutrition knowledge and were more physically active. Participants who passed weighed more and had higher skeletal muscle mass, lower body fat mass, and a slightly higher BMI. The study suggests the need for a program to balance aerobic and muscle training, as well as the introduction of a nutrition education program at the academy to improve training and test outcomes for cadets.
