Energy expenditure of healthy young men in a postural corrective training (TCP®)
MetadataShow full item record
The study determined the energy expenditure (EE) in the form of caloric expenditure and the metabolic equivalent (MET) in the Postural Corrective Training (TCP®) session. Nineteen subjects (25.53 ± 4.89 yrs) performed the 45-min video lesson exercise session that consisted of upper and lower limb movements based on the planes and axes. During the evaluation, oxygen consumption (VO2) in mL·kg-1·min-1 was measured to determine the subjects' MET and through indirect calorimetry the caloric expenditure in kcal, using the equivalents of O2 and VCO2 (VCO2 / VO2) was determined. The findings indicate that the exercise session mean was 5.0 ± 1.32 METs, the EE was 296.55 kcal. The Postural Corrective Training session is a moderate activity (from 3 to 6 METs) that can be applied to individuals who are between 5 and 10 METs.
