Data are presented as means±standard error.

Superscript (a, b, c, d): different superscript shows post-hoc results using the bonferroni in the ANOVA (P<0.05).

Q1, first quartile group; Q2, second quartile group; Q3, third quartile group; Q4, forth quartile group; NC, neck circumference; AHGS, absolute handgrip strength; RHGS, relative handgrip strength.

*The mean value shows significantly difference compared with Q1 (P<0.01).
