Arm and leg metabolism were compared by arterial and venous catheterization and blood flow measurements (by dye dilution techniques) in two groups of subjects performing 30-min continuous arm or leg exercise of increasing intensity corresponding to approximately 30, 50 and 80% of max oxygen uptake for arm or leg exercise. The absolute work-loads were 2.5-3 times higher during leg compared to arm exercise. Heart rates were the same in both types of exercise. r-Values were 0.97-1.07 during arm… CONTINUE READING
