INTRODUCTION: Elevated metabolism is common to spaceflight while exercise in microgravity exacerbates energy costs. Thus in-flight exercise countermeasures must be devised that minimize energy costs as they are performed on hardware operable in microgravity.
METHODS: Female subjects (N = 28), subdivided into athletic and sedentary groups, each performed two workouts on a resistive exercise device (Impulse Training Systems; Newnan, GA). Comprised exclusively of either tonic or phasic repetitions, each exercise bout entailed two 1 -min sets interspersed by a 90-s rest from which the work volume was determined. Oxygen consumption was measured before, during, and after workouts until gas uptake returned to pre-exercise levels. Net oxygen consumption was converted to net energy expenditures via indirect calorimetry. Mean net energy expenditure and work volume values were each compared with 2 (athletes, sedentaries) x 2 (tonic, phasic) ANOVAs, with repeated measures for workout. In addition, multivariate regression employed three predictor (body mass, body fat percentage, work volume) variables to account for the net energy expenditure variance.
RESULTS: Workouts yielded a metabolic cost of approximately 14 kcal, yet the data produced no significant intergroup or workout differences. However, work volume analysis yielded a significant (tonic > phasic) effect. The multivariate analysis explained small yet significant amounts of net energy expenditure variance.
DISCUSSION: Current results: 1) are partly attributable to higher series elastic element activity seen with Impulse repetitions; and 2) offer new information with respect to in-flight exercise protocols for female astronauts.
