This study compared the physiological responses and the mechanical efficiency during both arm cranking exercise and leg pedaling exercise with identical work loads, and determined whether arm cranking or unilateral leg pedaling performance could be used to estimate bilateral pedaling exercise capacity. Seven healthy adult males [mean age: 32 (27–36) years old] participated in this study. Arm cranking and leg pedaling exercise tests were carried out using an identical electrically controlled… CONTINUE READING
