Habituation of Children to Treadmill Walking and Running: Metabolic and Kinematic Criteria

Abstract

This study examined habituation to treadmill walking or running in children. Twenty-four boys and girls, ages 7-1 1, completed six 6-min trials of treadmill exercise at one of these speeds: (a) comfortable walking pace (CWP), (b) CWP + 15%, (c) running at CWP + 3 km.hr-I, or (d) running as above + 15%. The six trials were repeated in a second visit. The a… (More)
