Study Description
Brief Summary:
This study purpose is (1) to develop the new energy expenditure equation; (2) to increase accuracy of energy cost prediction of cycle ergometer; (3) to find out some dependent factors.

Condition or disease
Healthy Obesity

Detailed Description:
Oxygen consumption (ml/min) was measured while subjects were at rest and exercised at four submaximal workloads in steady state on cycle ergometer. Bioelectrical impedance analysis was used to estimate the body fats and skeletal muscle mass.
