The Heart Rate Response of Adult Males to a Systematic Exercise Program.
Bolonchuk, W. W.; Clayton, R. D.
The purpose of this study was to examine the effects of a systematic exercise program on sedentary males. The 12 male volunteers were all in occupations which did not require strenuous physical exercise, and they were not carrying out any regular program of exercise. (The mean age for the group was 46 years.) A battery of anthropometric tests and a standard bicycle ergometer test of heart rate performance were administered at four intervals over four months. Heart rate response to the bicycle ergometer test revealed a reduction of heart rate over each of the four tests from test 1 to test 4. No significant changes occurred in anthropometric measures, although some reduction of superficial facts was apparent. (PB)
