Physiologic and Metabolic Responses to a Body Pump Workout


Collapse Box


Fifteen men and 15 women completed a Body Pump workout in which Vo2 and heart rate (HR) were measured continuously. The workout was performed at a mean Vo2 of 14.8 ml[middle dot]kg-1-min-1 (29.1% of Vo2peak), HR of 123.6 b[middle dot]min-1 (63.0% of HRmax), and caloric expenditure of 5.3 kcal[middle dot]min-1. Tracks using primarily the lower body had higher (p < 0.01) Vo2, HR, kcal[middle dot]min-1, and weight lifted than tracks using primarily the upper body. Men had higher (p < 0.05) Vo2, HR, percentage HRmax, total kilocalories, and kcal[middle dot]kg-1-min-1 during Body Pump than women, but there were no differences (p > 0.05) for Vo2 in ml[middle dot]kg FFM-1[middle dot]min-1 and kcal[middle dot]kg FFM-1[middle dot]min-1. Responses were below that necessary to elicit an aerobic-training effect and were lower than responses previously reported with circuit weight training.
