As a countermeasures for the decrease in maximal oxygen uptake (VO2max) during prolong simulated weightlessness, it has been suggested that intensive isotonic legs exercise was useful. The reason is possibly that a dynamic and intensive resistance exercise training makes to maintain not only the volume of exercising muscles but also cardiac output. For the reason, it has been studied the effects of 3 different exercise training on VO2max during simulated weightlessness.
