The ElliptiGO is a hybrid between a bicycle and an elliptical cross-trainer and is meant to be used outdoors. The purposes of this study were to 1) to determine the relative exercise intensity of exercise on the ElliptiGO, ...
Heart rate response and energy cost of log rolling
Log rolling vvas once a sport found only at traditional lumberjack competitions, but now has evolved into a recreational physical activity available to the public. The advent of the Key Log� has made this possible. The Key ...
Prediction of one repetition maximum bench press from push-ups in active young males
The purpose of this study was to determine the accuracy of predicting one maximal bench press (1RM) lifting strength from the maximum number of push-ups (PU) in 1 minute for active young males.
VO2MAX test protocol for simulated cross-country skiing
The purpose of this study was to develop a simulated cross-country skiing (XC) V02max test protocol for use with the NordiCare Strider (NS). The three variables that control workload on the NS (resistance, speed, and ...

Energy cost of wearing Titin compression gear during exercise
The purpose this study was to determine the effects of wearing an 8 pound Titin \Veighted compressio11 shirt on heart rate (HR), oxygen consumption (V02), and caloric expenditure (kcal) during exercise. Eight male and eight ...
Effects of speech passage duration on talk test response
The Talk Test (TT) is a simple technique for prescribing exercise training intensity, based on the ability to 'speak comfortably' after reciting a standard speech provoking stimulus. Purpose: This study compares the duration ...
Evaluation of energy expenditure on the Woodway curve treadmill
This study was designed to 1) compare the caloric expenditure values displayed on the Curve's console to directly measured values, and 2) if there was a significant difference between displayed and measured values, to ...
Accuracy of heart rate-based zone training using predicted versus measured maximal heart rate
Predicted maximal heart rate (PMHR) equations are used in a variety of settings for exercise prescription. However, their efficacy is often questioned in the literature. The purpose of this study was to examine the accuracy ...
