Cardiovascular and neuromuscular responses of 12 male Royal Marine recruits (age 22 ± 3 years, body mass 80.7 ± 6.8 kg, VO(2)max 52.3 ± 2.7 ml kg(-1) min(-1)) were measured during 19.3 km of load carriage walking at 4.2 km h(-1) and carrying 31.0 kg. Heart rate during load carriage was 145 ± 10 beats·min(-1) (64 ± 5 %HRR) and showed a negative relationship with body mass (r = -0.72, P = 0.009) but no relationship with VO(2)max (ml kg(-1) min(-1); r = -0.40, P = 0.198). Load carriage caused a… CONTINUE READING
