The aim of the present study was to compare the physiological responses during arm exercises when the crank rate was chosen spontaneously (TS) or set at +/- 20 % (T-20, T+ 20) of the spontaneously chosen crank rate (SCCR). Eight physical education male students, aged 22 +/- 3.2 years, performed an upper body exercise in which intensities ranged from unload(More)
The wheel camber of a wheelchair is a significant parameter that must be taken into account in the search for optimal regulation of a wheelchair. This study examined the effects of different rear-wheel camber (9 degrees , 12 degrees and 15 degrees )-today used mainly in the handibasket championship-on the various kinetic and kinematic parameters of the(More)
The aims of the present study were: first, to assess the interindividual variations of a spontaneously chosen crank rate (SCCR) in relation to the power developed during an incremental upper body exercise on an arm ergometer set at a constant power regime, and second, to compare heart rate (HR) responses, expired minute ventilation (V˙ E) and oxygen(More)
OBJECTIVES To examine cardiorespiratory fitness, resting cardiac parameters, and muscle oxygenation changes in soccer players having undergone anterior cruciate ligament reconstruction and to assess the benefits of a one-leg cycling (OLC) aerobic training program performed during the rehabilitation period. DESIGN Randomized clinical trial. SETTING(More)
The aim of the present study was to compare the physiological responses when the crank rate was chosen spontaneously (Ts) or set at +/- 10% (T-10%, T+10%) of the freely chosen rate, during two upper body exercises: i) a sub-maximal test (T(SUB)) in which intensities ranged from 50 to 80% (118.4 +/- 10.2 to 189.5 +/- 16.3 watts) of maximal power (MP) and ii)(More)
The aim of this study was to compare the cardiorespiratory and efficiency responses between upper (T(UBE)) and lower (T(LBE)) body exercises at the same relative power outputs and with spontaneously chosen crank (SCCR) or pedal (SCPR) rates. Twelve participants performed exercise bouts set at 20, 40, 60 and 80% of maximal power (MP) separated by passive(More)
The aim of this study was to assess the relationship between spontaneously chosen crank rate (SCCR) and power output during two upper body exercise tests: firstly, an incremental maximal aerobic power test (T1), with an initial intensity of 50 W followed by 15-W increases at each subsequent 90-s stage and secondly, a test (T2) with consecutive exercise(More)
To compare the effects of 2 short programs with similar training load (TL), based on combined aerobic - resistance training (CT) or aerobic training (AT) on cardiorespiratory responses, 32 patients with coronary heart disease (CHD: 63.8±8.0y, 1.73±0.06 m, 84.8±15.9 kg, Left Ventricular Ejection Fraction: 0.53±0.8) performed 4 weeks of exercise(More)
INTRODUCTION In the field of sports for the disabled, this last decade has been marked by the development of handcycling. Although assessment of maximal capacity during arm exercises in cases of spinal cord injury (SCI) has been widely investigated, investigations of maximal capacity in handcyclists remain less frequent. OBJECTIVE The aim of this study(More)
OBJECTIVE To compare the cardiorespiratory responses, blood lactate concentration and perceived exertion between 1-leg cycling and arm cranking. DESIGN Comparison of exercise modalities. SETTING Hospital. PARTICIPANTS Fourteen men who had undergone knee surgery were evaluated during rehabilitation. INTERVENTIONS Not applicable. MAIN OUTCOME(More)
