1] YMCA step test and a maximal treadmill test
A minimum of 72 h after the initial testing session, during the second phase, the participants completed an AT maximal treadmill test
to volitional exhaustion (GXT) with continuous respiratory gas measurements on five consecutive days.
To establish a baseline of fitness for the subjects, each performed a maximal treadmill test
that measured heart rate (HR) and oxygen consumption (VO2).
Materials/Methods: All subjects performed a graded maximal treadmill test
where ventilation and expired gases were measured continuously with an automated metabolic cart.
A maximal treadmill test
was performed to determine maximum oxygen consumption (V[O.
We [saw] a noticeable drop in the rate of stroke at a fitness level associated with 7-8 METs [metabolic equivalents] based on their maximal treadmill test
Prior to the study, subjects performed a maximal treadmill test
to determine V[O.
presented to 24 subjects during a graded maximal treadmill test
The HR values recorded during the maximal treadmill test
and the high intensity dance test were calculated as percentage of the five participants' HRmax.
Each subject performed an incremental, maximal treadmill test
with measurement of heart rate (HR) and oxygen consumption (V[O.
2max] improvement in maximal treadmill tests
with verbal encouragement as well as increases in respiratory exchange ratio (RER), treadmill run time, maximum heart rate and blood lactate concentration for untrained subjects.
