Monitoring training progress during exercise training in cancer survivors

a submaximal exercise test as an alternative for a maximal exercise test?

Samenvatting

OBJECTIVE: To examine the use of a submaximal exercise test in detecting change in fitness level after a physical training program, and to investigate the correlation of outcomes as measured submaximally or maximally. DESIGN: A prospective study in which exercise testing was performed before and after training intervention. SETTING: Academic and general hospital and rehabilitation center. PARTICIPANTS: Cancer survivors (N=147) (all cancer types, medical treatment completed > or =3 mo ago) attended a 12-week supervised exercise program. INTERVENTIONS: A 12-week training program including aerobic training, strength training, and group sport. MAIN OUTCOME MEASURES: Outcome measures were changes in peak oxygen uptake (Vo(2)peak) and peak power output (both determined during exhaustive exercise testing) and submaximal heart rate (determined during submaximal testing at a fixed workload). RESULTS: The Vo(2)peak and peak power output increased and the submaximal heart rate decreased significantly from baseline to postintervention (P or =140 bpm) were clearly related to changes in VO(2)peak and peak power output. CONCLUSIONS: For the monitoring of training progress in daily clinical practice, changes in heart rate at a fixed submaximal workload that requires a heart rate greater than 140 bpm may serve as an alternative to an exhaustive exercise test.
