Physiological effects of similar training programs in males and females
Comparisons were made between untrained college-age males and females in selected physiological alterations as a result of training. Experimental groups trained three times weekly for eight weeks at a heart rate (HR) intensity between 75% and 85% of HR max with total distance run held equal between sexes. MANOVA revealed a significant training effect for the experimental groups as well as a significant difference between sexes in response to training. Univariate ANCOVA revealed a significant training effect for [Vdot]O max expressed in ml/kg.min and 1.min , [Vdot] max expressed in 1.min and 1/kg.min , O pulse at [Vdot]O max and body weight. Sex differences were found for [Vdot] max (1.min ), and weight. No significant training effect was found for HR max or VE at [Vdot]O max. © 1977 Taylor 8 Francis Group, LLC. 2 E 2 2 E 2 -1 -1 -1 -1 -1
