We investigated differences in walking (80 m/min) and running (147 m/min) economy [submaximal oxygen consumption (VO(2) (submax))] between adolescent girls (n = 13; age = 13.3 +/- 0.9 yr) and young women (n = 23; age = 21.0 +/- 1.5 yr). Subjects were matched for height (158.7 +/- 2.9 cm) and weight (52.1 +/- 3.0 kg). Anthropometric measures (height, weight,(More)
Background: The reliability and validity of the SensorMedics VmaxST was tested. Methods: Thirty subjects (age = 24.5 ± 4.0 years, height = 174.8 ± 9.8 cm, weight = 70.3 ± 12.6 kg) performed treadmill exercise on three occasions, twice using the VmaxST and once using the SensorMedics 2900 system. Oxygen consumption (VO2; L/min) and heart rate (HR; beats/min)(More)
We described the physiological profiles of rowers (N = 16; age = 20.1 +/- 1.4 years, weight = 78.6 +/- 9.5 kg, height = 177.5 +/- 3.1 cm) of the top 2 varsity boats on an NCAA women's crew and determined whether physiological measures predict boat assignment as determined by the head coach. Eight participants were members of the top varsity boat (1V) and 8(More)
