Mechanical and physiological responses to lower extremity loading during running.

It was concluded that the increased physiological demand was directly related to the mechanical work increases, which in turn were attributed to the increased inertia of the loaded segments rather than modifications in the kinematics of the lower extremity movements.

The findings indicate that the efficacy of shoulder-worn exercise weights to augment the physiological demand of walking exercise is marginal at best.

Physiological responses to walking with hand weights, wrist weights, and ankle weights.

To compare the blood pressure (BP) responses to exercise with 1.36 kg (3.0 lb) hand-held weights (HW), wrist weights (WW), and ankle weights (AW), 12 sedentary males (20.8 +/- 1.2 yr) completed three

Physical activity and public health: updated recommendation for adults from the American College of Sports Medicine and the American Heart Association.

The purpose of the present report is to update and clarify the 1995 recommendations on the types and amounts of physical activity needed by healthy adults to improve and maintain health.

Metabolic and hemodynamic responses to walking with hand weights in older individuals.

The results indicate that the use of HHW significantly increases metabolic responses at W3 and W5 during CS exercise in older adults, while hemodynamic responses increase significantly across HHW for both CS and CHR.

Generally, mortality patterns in 2005, such as the age-adjusted death rate declining to a record historical low, were consistent with long-term trends.

Physical activity and public health. A recommendation from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention and the American College of Sports Medicine.

Every US adult should accumulate 30 minutes or more of moderate-intensity physical activity on most, preferably all, days of the week.

Effects of extremity loading upon energy expenditure and running mechanics.

It appears that the small actual increases in energy expenditure, the potential for increased impact forces, and the relative discomfort of carrying weights discredit running with hand and/or ankle weights as a desirable exercise alternative.
