The effect of a 5-month endurance training programme on physical activity and average daily metabolic rate (ADMR) was studied. Subjects were 16 males and 16 females preparing for a half marathon. Total physical activity, measured using an accelerometer, had increased by 62% and 63% after 20 weeks in males and females, respectively. Physical activity during the non-exercise part of the day did not change although in males it tended to increase (15%, NS). The ADMR had increased significantly in… CONTINUE READING
