The purpose of this study was to examine the steady-state effects of added upper-body mass on heart rate (HR) and oxygen consumption (VEO2) while rowing on a rowing ergometer at three different intensities. Sixteen active subjects, 11 male 5 female, volunteered to perform three series of 6-minute intervals with and without a weighted vest condition containing 10% of the subject's body mass. At least 24 hours after the first mass condition, subjects performed the second set of three 6-minute intervals in the other weighted condition. Each interval was performed at 40, 55, and 70% of the subject's peak power obtained from a peak oxygen consumption assessment. Both the interval intensity and the mass condition were chosen at random. The results indicated no significant difference (pAlong with the air analysis system, a Polar HR monitor (Vintage XL., Polar Electro Inc., Finland) was utilized to measure HR throughout the testing procedure. Heart rate measures were recorded 20-seconds before the next stage of the gradedanbsp;...
