The effect of spontaneous running activity on maximal O2 consumption (VO2max), running performance, and submaximal O2 consumption (VO2submax, running economy) was studied in rats to determine whether this exercise mode can produce significant training adaptations. Twenty male Long-Evans rats (300 +/- 20 g) were housed in spontaneous activity running wheels, and after 8 wk they were divided into high-, average-, and low-performing groups according to the average spontaneous running distance and… CONTINUE READING
