Speed dependence of the Rockport fitness walking test
Introduction: The Rockport Fitness Walking Test is a submaximal test that predicts V02ma" to be used in fitness assessment and exercise prescription. This test requires subjects to walk at a brisk pace. However the ability ...
Kinetic and kinematic comparison of HOKA shoes to standard running shoes
The purpose of this study was to compare the kinetics and kinematics of running in HOKA shoes to standard shoes. Sixteen subjects (8 male, 8 female) who ran at least 6 miles per week and had not had a lower extremity ...
Prediction of ventilatory threshold from a submaximal one mile walk test
Maximal oxygen consumption (VOzmax) is considered the gold standard reference for the evaluation of aerobic metabolism. Emerging evidence suggests that ventilatory threshold (VT) is a better way to prescribe exercise ...
Prediction of maximal oxygen uptake using the Rockport one mile walk test and rating of perceived exertion
This study was designed to evaluate the effect of using the Rating of Perceived Exertion (RPE) on the accuracy of the Rockport 1- mile walk test. Eighty-eight subjects ranging in age and fitness levels performed a Rockpmt ...
