Abstract or Summary
  • The effects of bicycle exercise on specific anthropometric and physiological measures were observed in two test subjects (S1 and S2) over a twelve week exercise period. The two subjects, one male (S1) and one female (S2) participated in a graduated bicycle exercise program. Body weight, body measurements, circulatory function tests, blood chemistry measurements, and pulmonary ventilation tests were the criterion measures utilized in this study. The measurements were taken on a pre- and post-test basis. Baseline measurements taken prior to the initiation of the exercise program were compared to subsequent measurements taken upon completion of the program. The following results were observed and attributed to the subjects' involvement in the exercise program: A. There was no appreciable change in body weight in either subject. B. There was a slight decrease in body measurements, particularly in the area of the abdomen, and thighs. C. There was a marked decrease in the resting heart rate of both subjects. D. There was a marked decrease in working heart rates of both subjects as demonstrated by the treadmill stress test. E. S1 showed no change in resting blood pressure measurements, while S2 showed a decrease. F. There were no consistent results obtained on working blood pressure measurements. G. There was a marked decrease in the recovery heart rate of S2. Results were not obtained on S1. H. There was a decrease in twelve hour fasting serum cholesterol levels in both subjects. I. There was a slight increase in twelve hour fasting triglyceride levels in both subjects. J. S1 showed a slight increase in pulmonary ventilation, while S2 showed an overall decrease.
