AbstractOn 46 healthy young men, of whom 18 took part in strenuous sport at least once a week, height, weight, total body fat (as % of body mass) and lean body mass (LBM) were determined. The subjects performed submaximal exercise on a bicycle ergometer and climbing on an upwardly inclined treadmill at work loads of 60, 110, and 140 watts. Oxygen consumption ( $$\dot V_{O_2 }$$ ), respiratory quotient (RQ), energy expenditure (ė), and heart rate (fH) were measured at rest and at each work load… Expand

Seasonal variation of maximal oxygen consumption rate in humans
TLDR
The results suggest that seasonal variation in maximal aerobic power may occur in young males; this may in turn affect their response to physical training. Expand
Maximal oxygen uptake in Danish adolescents 16–19 years of age
TLDR
The results of maximal aerobic power measurement in the boys compare well with findings from other investigations using direct measurements, indicating that the fitness of teenage boys is kept at a high level. Expand
Physical performance capacity of children in norway
TLDR
Relative hypo-ventilation, caused by the experimental situation, which may hamper respiration because the children were unaccustomed to breath through mouthpiece and valve, seems to be the best explanation for the different results. Expand
Analysis of Bicycle Ergometer: A Review
The aim of this review paper is to outline the various methods to know the human energy using Bicycle Ergometer. Bicycle ergometers are common in gyms, while bicycle ergometers are more frequentlyExpand
Physical performance capacity of children in Norway
TLDR
Datas of the circulatory system of a longitudinal/cross-sectional study concerning the development of maximal aerobic power in youth and the different or similar results of some other population studies are discussed with reference to the background of population and physical characteristics.

Exertion Therapy for the Mentally Subnormal Child
The application of exercise as a therapeutic technique has its roots in antiquity. However, it is only fairly recently that systematic studies have been undertaken to investigate the role of exerciseExpand
Reprogramming of basic metabolic pathways in microbial sepsis: therapeutic targets at last?
TLDR
This review focuses on the pathological changes in metabolism, observed during sepsis, and the presumed underlying mechanisms, with a focus on the level of the organism and the interplay between different organ systems. Expand
Physical performance capacity of children in Norway
TLDR
The maximal aerobic power was related to age, sex and development, and the relationships between $$\dot V_{O_2 \max } $$ and morphological variables are described. Expand

TLDR
The whole body oxygen uptake was linearly related to both work rate in kg m and body weight in kg with the regression coefficients for work rate higher and for body weight lower for males than for females. Expand

TLDR
Responsibility of heart rate to a given load, that is, predicted maximal oxygen uptake with ASTRAND-RYHMING nomogram, PWC170/kg and fitness index of the Step Test had no significant correlation tomaximal oxygen uptake. Expand
A fitness performance test for school children and its correlation with physical working capacity and maximal oxygen uptake.
TLDR
The CAHPER test for physical fitness shows little or no correlation with standard laboratory measures of endurance in average children and multiple correlations were obtained including surface area as the first variable. Expand

TLDR
Sexual differences in the amount and distribution of subcutaneousFat accumulation in the two sexes persist throughout childhood, and the tendency to greater accumulation in girls, particularly over the hips and abdomen, becomes steadily more evident. Expand

Examination of 18 males by graded load in the step-test and on the bicycle ergomotor showed the following. Both tasks carried on to exhaustion gave practically the same heart rate values, theExpand

TLDR
In large scale population studies of work capacity or in the evaluation of training programmes in rehabilitation studies, a continuous test may be used but attention must be paid to familiarization procedures. Expand
Improving the accuracy of prediction of an individual's maximum oxygen intake
TLDR
Of the factors measured in this experiment only differences in weight and height in the Bantu contribute to the variations between individuals in maximum oxygen intake and 70 per cent of the variations is left unaccounted for. Expand
Maximal oxygen intake and its relation to body composition, with special reference to chronic physical activity and obesity.
The maximal oxygen intake (Max Vo2) was determined in 46 healthy male students and 13 soldiers along with the weight of body fat as estimated by immersion densitometry. In 41 the active tissue and ...

TLDR
The data support the concept that the comparatively low specific gravity of fat makes the measurement of the specificgravity of the body mass valid for the estimation of fat content. Expand
