Enrollment: 40
Study Start Date: June 2009
Study Completion Date: August 2009
Primary Completion Date: August 2009 (Final data collection date for primary outcome measure)
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.
