The purpose of this study was to examine metabolic and hemodynamic responses of older adults (age = 66.2 +/- 5.6 yr) to walking with hand-held weights (HHW). Nineteen volunteers participated in eight randomly assigned, 10-min, submaximal, self-selected constant speed (CSP) or constant heart rate (CHR) exercise bouts using the following HHW conditions: no weight, W0; 0.45 kg, W1; 1.36 kg, W3; 2.27 kg, W5. Oxygen uptake (VO2) was recorded every 30 s, heart rate (HR) each minute, and blood… CONTINUE READING
