We investigated whether the spontaneous transition between walking and running during moving with increasing speed corresponds to the speed at which walking becomes less economical than running. Seven active male subjects [mean age, 23.7 (SEM 0.7) years, mean maximal oxygen uptake (VO2max), 57.5 (SEM 3.3), mean ventilatory threshold (VTh), 37.5 (SEM3)] participated in this study. Each subject performed four exercise tests separated by 1-week intervals: test 1, VO2max and VTh were determined; test 2, the speed at which the transition between walking and running spontaneously occurs (ST) during increasing speed (increases of 0.5 km.h-1 every 4 min from 5 km.h-1) was determined; test 3, the subjects were constrained to walk for 4 min at ST, at ST +/- 0.5 km.h-1 and at ST +/- 1 km.h-1; and test 4, the subjects were constrained to run for 4 min at ST, at ST +/- 0.5 km.h-1 and at ST +/- 1 km.h-1. During exercise oxygen uptake (VO2), heart rate (HR), ventilation (VE), ventilatory equivalents for oxygen and carbon dioxide (VE/VO2, VE/VCO2), respiratory exchange ratio (R), stride length (SL), and stride frequency (SF) were measured.(ABSTRACT TRUNCATED AT 250 WORDS)
