The physiological responses to walking with and without Power Poles on treadmill exercise
Power poles are specially constructed, rubber-tipped ski poles designed for use during walking. The user simulates the arm motion of cross-country skiing while walking, thus increasing the muscle mass used during exercise. ...
Physiological responses of healthy adults to walking with a powerbelt
The purpose of this study was to provide descriptive data on the physiological responses to walking at a self-selected pace with and without a Powerbelt. In random order, ten male (age = 22 + 0.9 yr, ht = 178 4 5.8 cm, ...
The energy cost of horizontal speedwalking in males, 20 to 40 years of age
The primary question to be answered in this study was: what is the energy cost of horizontal speedwalking in males, 20 to 40 years of age?
The energy cost of women walking with and without hand weights while performing rhythmic arm movements
Sixteen female Ss (30-59 yrs) volunteered to walk at 3.0 mph, normal walk (NW), while performing arm movements to the shoulder level of excursion (SLE) and head level of excursion (HLE), with no weight (0-), 1 lb (I-), ...
The effects of twelve weeks of walking or exerstriding on upper body muscular strength and endurance
This study determined potential changes in upper body muscular strength and endurance as a result of walking with the use of specially designed walking poles (Exerstriders). Ninety-two inactive females, 20-49 yrs, ...
A comparison of rating of perceived exertion in treadmill vs track walking and running
Twenty-six volunteers, ages 19-36 years completed 3 exercise tests (females = 22; males = 4).The purpose of the study was to evaluate the use of rating of perceived emotion (RPE) as a frame of reference for the production ...
Acute effects of mild exercise on postprandial glucose and unsulin responses
Purpose: Hyperinsulinemia is a risk factor for cardiovascular disease. Chronic exercise is established as an anti-hyperinsulinemic factor. The purpose of this study was to determine if a postprandial exercise bout (20 min ...
A biomechanical analysis of the effects of hand weights on the arm-swing while walking and running
Ten female track runners (E age = 21.5) volunteered as subjects to determine if 4 lb hand weights would alter shoulder and elbow displacements and angular velocities under various locomotion speeds. Subjects were videotaped ...
