Despite growing popularity of non-motorized treadmills (NMT), little data exist regarding responses during exercise testing utilizing this equipment, which is important when providing an appropriate exercise prescription. The purpose of this study was to evaluate physiological and perceptual responses during peak graded exercise tests (GXT) on a motorized treadmill (MT) vs. NMT. Volunteers (12 M, 12 F; 18-35 yr) performed two peak GXT sessions (one MT, one NMT). Respiratory gases and HR were… CONTINUE READING
