Isometric exercise -- Physiological aspects, Energy metabolism
The energy cost of performing 1 and 3 sets of strength-type (6-8 RM) and endurance-type (30-35 RM) bench press exercise was estimated by indirect calorimetry in 10 male college students.
The total net energy cost of performing 3 sets of endurance-type resistive exercise (20.57 ± 1.86 kcal) was significantly (p-1) the strength-type exercise (2.35 ± 0.19) resulted in a significantly (p
