Compendium of physical activities: an update of activity codes and MET intensities.
We provide an updated version of the Compendium of Physical Activities, a coding scheme that classifies specific physical activity (PA) by rate of energy expenditure. Expand
2011 Compendium of Physical Activities: a second update of codes and MET values.
PURPOSE The Compendium of Physical Activities was developed to enhance the comparability of results across studies using self-report physical activity (PA). Expand
Compendium of physical activities: classification of energy costs of human physical activities.
A coding scheme is presented for classifying physical activity by rate of energy expenditure, i.e., by intensity. Expand
Exercise standards for testing and training: a statement for healthcare professionals from the American Heart Association.
