Unformatted text preview: t of different activities can be reported as multiples of the energy cost of rest ◦ 3.5 mL/kg/min Assumes all people have the same relative resting metabolic rate MET-eq of an activity thus depends on the intensity of the activity MET Compendium Allows for a comparison of the energy cost of different activities MET-Eq Activity Calculating Energy Cost (Problem Set #2) 1. Tom’s personal trainer recommended that he bike @ an intensity of 7 METs. What is the mL/kg/min for this exercise prescription? 1 MET= 3.5 mL/kg/min 7 METS= 3.5 x 7 = 24.5 mL/kg/min Calculating METS 2. Karen (153 pounds) does some stairstepping for exercise at an intensity of VO2= 43.9 mL/kg/min. At this rate, what is her exercise energy expenditure in METs? 1 MET= 3.5 mL/kg/min (43.9 mL/kg/min) / (3.5 mL/kg/min)= 12.5 METs Absolute vs. Relative VO2 3. Jan (143 lb) has an absolute VO2max of 3.0 L/min. What is her relative VO2max? (There are 2.2 lb/kg) 143 lbs/ 2.2 = 65 kg 3.0 x 1000 = 3000 mL/min 3000/65= 46.2 mL/kg/min Abs...
