The use of the supine training position to enhance aerobic training was evaluated in a 10-week upper-body exercise study. Fourteen subjects with quadriplegia (QD) were matched on initial peak power output (PO) values and then randomly assigned to either a supine (SUP, n = 7) or sitting (SIT, n = 7) training group. Peak VO2 and PO were measured pretraining and posttraining in both the supine and sitting positions. There were significant (p < .01) increases in peak VO2 (720 to 780 mL.min-1) and… CONTINUE READING
