To assess the influence of obesity on the oxygen uptake ( $$ \dot{V}{\text{O}}_{ 2} $$ ) kinetics of pre-pubertal children during moderate- and heavy intensity treadmill exercise. We hypothesised that obese (OB) children would demonstrate significantly slower $$ \dot{V}{\text{O}}_{ 2} $$ kinetics than their normal weight (NW) counterparts during moderate- and heavy intensity exercise. 18 OB (9.8 ± 0.5 years; 24.1 ± 2.0 kg m2) and 19 NW (9.7 ± 0.5 years; 17.6 ± 1.0 kg m2) children completed a… CONTINUE READING
