With weight being a prevalent theme within the sport of rock climbing, not only will this study provide insights into the sport of rock climbing but it will also contribute to the literature on body image and leanness
The association between leanness
and running performance has been reported among trained or recreational male and female runners of middle distance to marathon (1-5).
In Part 2 of the leanness
research, I use scored and graded long-term inventory data from Part 1 but sorted and combined with additional data in support of four special-topic studies.
For example, Olivardia (2001) proposed that muscle dysmorphia be defined with three key criteria: a) a person is preoccupied with a lack of muscularity and leanness

Among specific topics are Web applications for outsourcing logistics services, measuring the impact of tools on the leanness
of electronic procurement processes, monitoring and warning mechanisms of supply coordination in assembly system under delivery uncertainty, using radio-frequency identification technologies to electronically enable logistics supply chains, and a University of Greenwich case study of cloud computing.
Effective April 8, Russia banned almost all imports of Mexican beef because of concerns that Mexican producers had not complied with a commitment to refrain from using the animal-feed additive ractopamine, used to promote leanness

The discovery prompted Froguel to commence his study of obesity and the genetic makeup of individuals who suffer from both extreme obesity as well as extreme leanness
