Abstract

Resting metabolic rate (RMR) was studied in 29 cardiovascularly-trained (CV), resistance-trained (WT), and sedentary men (Sed) between the ages of 18 and 35 years. The hypothesis was that CV (n = 9) and WT (n = 10) would have higher resting metabolic rates than Sed (n = 10). RMR was measured by indirect calorimetry for 20 minutes in a fasted and resting condition. Expressed per kilogram of body weight, the mean RMR for CV was 3.205 {dollar}\pm{dollar} 0.357 ml/kg min, while those of WT and Sed were 3.032 {dollar}\pm{dollar} 0.481 and 3.005 {dollar}\pm{dollar} 0.642 ml/kg min, respectively. Expressed per kilogram of lean body mass, the mean of CV was 3.529 {dollar}\pm{dollar} 0.353 ml/kg LBM min, while those of WT and Sed were 3.464 {dollar}\pm{dollar} 0.628 and 3.550 {dollar}\pm{dollar} 0.770 ml/kg LBM min., respectively. One-way ANOVA tests revealed no differences in RMR among any of the three groups expressed as ml/kg min (F = 0.42, p {dollar}>{dollar} 0.05) or as ml/kg LBM min (F = 0.05, p {dollar}>{dollar} 0.05).
