The CER group increased peak V[O.sub.2] and MWD and also had lower sub-maximal heart rates than the UBST group and the CONT group during the treadmill exercise test. Although the UBST improved significantly more than the CONT group in PFWD in the SMWT, only the CER group improved significantly in PFWD and total pain perceived during the 6-minute walk test.
In normal visceral fat male Indian adolescents (n = 30), V[O.sub.2]max value obtained by treadmill exercise test following Bruce protocol was 49.29 [+ or -] 7.81 ml/kg/min, whereas in high visceral fat males (n = 30), it was 33.94 [+ or -] 6.75 ml/kg/min.
The DS responded to the treadmill exercise test more favorably than the single ACC sensor on the whole in our study though both the DS and single sensor response rates differed from the SN significantly.
Researchers determined participants' cardiorespiratory fitness using a maximal treadmill exercise test.
Also, it is important to point out that although the EE was determined during the treadmill exercise test, there is every reason to believe that the results will be similar to those obtained on the track (12).
Predictably, [VO.sub.2peak] (r=0.68; p=0.001) and [Ve.sub.peak] (r=0.5; p=0.005) correlated significantly with MWD during the treadmill exercise test.
