Abstract

Many subjective factors can affect energy cost (V’O2max, [7]; maximal strength and flexibility, [3]) and mechanical work (stride frequency, [6]) of walking. To our knowledge, no studies have been conducted to investigate if the level of daily physical activity (PAL) can affect external mechanical work (WEXT) and net energy cost (NetEC) of treadmill walking. The aim of the study was to analyse the relation between NetEC and WEXT with PAL.
