The Effects Of Nautilus Circuit Weight Training On Aerobic Capacity, Rhonda M. Ludwig Dec 1988

The Effects Of Nautilus Circuit Weight Training On Aerobic Capacity, Rhonda M. Ludwig

Master's Theses

The purpose of this study was to identify whether Nautilus Circuit Training effected maximal oxygen uptake (VO2max) levels of novice weight trainers. Fourteen college age male and female subjects (18-23 years old) from physical education classes at Western Michigan University participated in a six week Nautilus Training Program (NTP). Each subject performed a pre and post maximal treadmill graded exercise test to determine VO2max levels. A randomized block ANOVA design was used to analyze the dependent variable, VO2max. The mean of the pre-test VO2max level (42.83 ml x O2/kg ...


A Biomechanical Analysis Of The Effect Wear Patterns Of Running Shoes Have On Kinematic Variables Of The Lower Extremities, Audrey E. Randall Apr 1988

A Biomechanical Analysis Of The Effect Wear Patterns Of Running Shoes Have On Kinematic Variables Of The Lower Extremities, Audrey E. Randall

Master's Theses

The purpose of the study was to investigate the relationship between wear patterns of running shoes and selected kinematic variables of the lower extremities. Statistical analyses were completed by using a case study design for two male subjects. Subjects were filmed for ten strides on six different sessions over a three-month period. A two-way ANOVA design, with repeated measures, evaluated the dependent variables: (a) footstrike, (b) midstance and (c) toeoff phases. The degree of change was determined by digitizing ten points on the body. A University of California, Los Angeles, BMDP2V statistical package was used to determine differences between means ...
