PURPOSE To compare the number of steps accumulated by women instructed to walk 10,000 steps per day (10K group) with those told to take a brisk 30-min walk on most, preferably all, days of the week (30-min group). METHODS Daily steps were compared for 58 sedentary women (mean age 45.0+/-6.0 yr) randomly assigned to either the 10K or the 30-min group.(More)
PURPOSE The purpose of this study was to examine the accuracy of the Polar S410 for estimating gross energy expenditure (EE) during exercise when using both predicted and measured VO2max and HRmax versus indirect calorimetry (IC). METHODS Ten males and 10 females initially had their VO2max and HRmax predicted by the S410, and then performed a maximal(More)
This paper summarizes research examining the effects of walking on the prevention of cardiovascular disease (CVD) and treatment of CVD risk factors in women. Epidemiological evidence indicates that walking reduces a woman's risk for developing CVD. Walking may lower CVD risk by having beneficial effects on risk factors associated with CVD development.(More)
