Cardiorespiratory Responses to Treadmill Running at Different Slopes

2019-05-15 19:31:23 | BioPortfolio


The purpose of this study is: i) to determine if maximal oxygen uptake in downhill running is significantly different versus flat or uphill running, and ii) to compare cardiorespiratory and muscle fatigue responses to uphill vs flat and downhill running at similar running velocity and similar metabolic power. The investigators hypothesized that maximal oxygen uptake will be lower in downhill running. The investigators also anticipate attenuated cardiorespiratory and muscle fatigue responses to downhill running when compared to flat or uphill running performed at similar velocity but not when the comparison is done at similar metabolic power.

Effects of one week different intensity endurance exercise on cardiorespiratory and cardiometabolic markers in junior young athletes.

Endurance training in varied intensity zones are more likely to show different adaptive responses. However, it is still unclear the intensity level of endurance exercise in junior young athletes that ...

Quantification of Cardiorespiratory Fitness in Children with Obesity.

Without consideration for the effects of fat mass, there could be an underestimation of cardiorespiratory fitness in children with obesity leading to a clinical diagnosis of deconditioning and resulti...

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

Repeated reports by a research participant of symptoms, affect, behavior, and cognition close in time to experience and in the participant's natural environment.

Usually refers to the use of mathematical models in the prediction of learning to perform tasks based on the theory of probability applied to responses; it may also refer to the frequency of occurrence of the responses observed in the particular study.

The capability to perform the duties of one's profession generally, or to perform a particular professional task, with skill of an acceptable quality.

A measure of the functional capabilities of the heart, lungs and muscles, relative to the demands of specific exercise routines such as running or cycling.

Learning situations in which the sequence responses of the subject are instrumental in producing reinforcement. When the correct response occurs, which involves the selection from among a repertoire of responses, the subject is immediately reinforced.
