Female mice (n =186) from 43 CC strains were obtained from other experiments or from the System Genetics Core at UNC-Chapel Hill. The female mice in the experiment were all retired breeders and varied in life history and age. Mice had voluntary access to running wheels for 4 weeks. Body composition measures were taken before access to running wheels, after 2 weeks of exercise, and after 4 weeks of exercise.

Procedures conducted:
• body weight  Body weight before, during, and after several weeks of exercise.
• MRI  Body composition (fat and lean mass) before, during, and after several weeks of exercise.
• intake monitoring  Food intake, before, during, and after several weeks of exercise.
