  Purpose
The purpose of this study is to evaluate metabolic parameters in previously sedentary individuals before and after eccentric endurance training (hiking downwards). Study participants will regularly hike downwards over a difference in altitude of 540 meters during 8 weeks. For the opposite way, a cable car will be used. Metabolic profiles will be obtained at baseline and after the 8 weeks period of eccentric endurance exercise.
