Item Summary

Title: Selected Metabolic Responses To Skateboarding
Authors: Hunt, Ian K.
Issue Date: Aug 2004
Abstract: PURPOSE: This study used oxygen uptake (V0z) and heart rate (HR) responses to a skateboard treadmill test (TT) to estimate the metabolic responses to skateboarding during a field test (FT). METHODS: Ten skateboarders (age = 24.5±3.1 yr.; weight = 74.2±8.3 kg; height =176.2±6.6 cm; VO2max =53.7±5.2 ml•kg-1•min-1) participated in the TT and the FT. The FT consisted of 30-minutes of skateboarding while wearing a heart rate monitor. The HR data from each FT were used to estimate VO2. RESULTS: The mean VO2 for 30-minutes of skateboarding was estimated to be 28.6 ± 2.3 ml•kg-1•min-1. The mean caloric expenditure, assuming a mixed diet, was 308.6 ± 37.9 kcal (10.3 ± 1.3 Kcal•min-1 ). CONCLUSION: These data indicated that skateboarding could provide an adequate stimulus for increasing cardiorespiratory endurance and the intensity of self paced skateboarding may be adequate for inclusion in a weight management program.
