The Effects of endurance training upon brachial pulse wave and heart rate measurements of a group of middle-aged menOlenick, Norman Finlay Edward January 1965 (has links)
This study attempted to evaluate the effects of endurance training upon certain cardiovascular variables of a group of middle-aged men. Seventeen subjects were tested at the University of British Columbia before and after nine weeks of moderate training (average frequency of participation was two to three noon hour sessions per week). The subjects underwent a test procedure consisting of quiet sitting for fifteen minutes, brachial pulse wave tracings (sitting, standing, and post-exercise), a one-minute step test, and a six-minute ergometer ride. Finally, body weight was taken. Fourteen test variables were obtained from the results of this test procedure. These variables utilized by this study were: A. Heart Rate Measurements of 1. Quiet Sitting Heart Rate, 2. Step Test Two-Minute Total Recovery Heart Rate, 3. Cycling Steady-State Heart Rate, and 4. Cycling Two-Minute Total Recovery Heart Rate. B. Brachial Pulse Wave Measurements of 1. Sitting Area Under The Curve, 2. Sitting Systolic Amplitude, 3. Sitting Dicrotic Notch Amplitude, 4. Sitting Fatigue Ratio, 5. Sitting Obliquity Angle, 6. Sitting Diastolic Surge, 7. Sitting Rest To Work Ratio, 8. Standing Systolic Amplitude, and 9. Post-Exercise Systolic Amplitude. C. Body Weight in Pounds. The Null Hypothesis was proposed as a means of evaluating the significance of the mean difference between pre-training (Test 1) and post-training (Test 2) scores on each test item. The 5 per cent level of confidence (t = 1.746) was selected as the criterion for each variable. The results of this study indicate that the group showed no significant changes at the 5 per cent level of confidence in the quiet sitting heart rate, nor in any of the nine brachial pulse wave variables. Reductions significant at the 5 per cent level were observed in the step test two-minute total recovery heart rate, cycling steady-state heart, and cycling two-minute total recovery heart rate. Reductions in body weight were also observed to be significant at the 5 per cent level of confidence. The group appeared to improve their tolerance for sub-maximal exercise through moderate participation in the training programme. The significant heart rate reductions noted during and after work imply an increased work capacity. It appears that this moderate degree of training was not sufficient enough to significantly alter the refined cardiovascular variables (brachial pulse wave items). The coarse variables (recovery heart rate sums, steady-state heart rate, and body weight) were, however, significantly altered at the 5 per cent level of confidence. / Education, Faculty of / Curriculum and Pedagogy (EDCP), Department of / Graduate
The effect of physical conditioning on the motor fitness and cardiovascular condition of college freshmen.Scott, Harvey Alexander January 1964 (has links)
The purpose of this study was to evaluate the effectiveness of a twice-weekly thirty-minute 'physical conditioning class' in improving the Cardiovascular Condition and Motor Fitness of male college freshmen at the University of British Columbia. It was hypothesized that selected measurements of the physical fitness of the sample would be improved significantly by the programme. Fifteen subjects, selected randomly from a larger number in the conditioning class, were given a fitness test battery prior to and at the end of the eight week conditioning programme. The gains in fitness measured were evaluated in terms of statistical significance and in terms of standard scores previously established for normal young college men. A statistical comparison of the experimental group and a large sample of first year students tested in 1962 was made for the variables height, weight and motor performance. The two groups were found to be sufficiently alike to consider the experimental group as reasonably representative of male college freshmen enrolled in the Required Programme at the University. In almost all of the variables studied, approximately two-thirds of the subjects showed changes which were in the direction of increased physical fitness. All but one of the twenty-two variables used showed small mean changes in the direction of increased physical fitness although only twelve of these were statistically significant. Most of the mean gains were too small to be considered biologically or practically important. In the cardiovascular items, several subjects with relatively high scores on their first tests had lower scores when they were retested and several subjects who had relatively low scores on their first test had higher scores when they were retested. Most of the other subjects increased some of their scores slightly when they were retested but also some of their scores decreased slightly. The following conclusions were made. For improvement of Cardiovascular Condition, the training programme was too easy for the initially fit students, reasonably adequate for the initially unfit students and only slight stimulus for the majority. For improvement of Motor Fitness the training programme was not sufficient either in duration or intensity (or both) to produce practical or biologically important changes. / Education, Faculty of / Curriculum and Pedagogy (EDCP), Department of / Graduate
