Energy cost at three different speeds on a cross-country ski simulator
This study investigated the physiological responses of cross-country skiing at three different speeds using the NordicSport CrossTraining System (NSCTS).
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-), ...
Metabolic Cost of Downhill Ski Ergometry in Males
This study compared the physiological responses to 20 min of simulated downhill skiing between the NordicSportTM and Skier's EdgeTM downhill ski ergometers. Experienced male skiers N = 15, age = 18-34 yrs.) volunteered ...
The effects of the Cross Walk's resistive arm poles on the metabolic costs of treadmill walking
The recently developed CROSS WALKR exercise treadmill incorporates resistive arm poles designed to increase the metabolic costs associated with walking. Twenty-nine healthy men (mean age, 24.2 yr) were recruited to study ...
Energy cost of walking with and without arm activity on the Cross Walk dual motion cross trainer
The CROSS WALK Dual Motion Cross Trainer (CROSS WALK) (Proform, Logan, UT) is a motorized treadmill designed to increase the energy cost of walking by incorporating arm activity during walking, thus increasing the muscle ...
