The rising ventilatory cost of bicycle exercise in the seventh decade: a longitudinal study of nine healthy men.

Abstract

Submaximal bicycle exercise tests have been performed in nine healthy men on seven annual occasions between the ages of 64 and 70 years. Ten younger men (average age 33 years) have also been studied once for comparison. The ventilatory cost of submaximal work at VO2 = 1 litre/min rises significantly from 24.3 +/- 0.8 litres/min at age 64 years to 31.8 +/- 1… (More)
