KIN 411 Final Exam Study Emphasis Information
Know the basics of how to check the calibration of the treadmill and cycle ergometer.
Cycle Resistance Calibration
Inspect the resistance on the cycle while no subject is pedaling (resistance should be at 0).
Scientific Writing II
By reading the introduction one can clearly tell that the study is based around
determining whether or not treadmill training is beneficial regarding gait and stride length
improvements. The authors also clearly state th

The article that I read was about the relationship between percentage of VO2 max and type of physical activity in obese and non-obese children. The article was out of The Journal of Sports Medicine and Physical Fitness and written by Lazzer, Boirie,
1. Why is this calibration laboratory important?
The calibration lab that we completed is important for many reasons, but mostly to ensure the
procedures that we carry out are as valid as possible. Most of the procedures we will perform in
VO2max results obtained from a graded exercise test to determine validity of four
submaximal exercise tests and ventilatory threshold.
PURPOSE: The purposes of this study were 1) to determine maximal aerobic capacity (VO 2max),
2) to evaluate the

To calibrate a stadiometer, you must measure something with a known height. To
calibrate a scale, you must weigh something of known weight.
