* Exercise capacity, expressed in metabolic equivalents
of task (METs)
This reference reports energy expenditure in METS -- or metabolic equivalents
-- but can be converted to kilocalories per minute by multiplying METS x 3.5 x body weight in kilograms then dividing by 200.
The fitness levels were assessed using MET (metabolic equivalents
of task) scores achieved on the treadmill.
Primary outcome measures for the acute cardiovascular and metabolic responses to the Total Gym[R] Row Trainer[TM] portion of the study were relative exercise intensity (%HRR and %V[O.sub.2]R), metabolic equivalents
(METs), and energy expenditure (kcal*[min.sup.-1] and kcal*[session.sup.-1]).
Exercise >6 metabolic equivalents
was defined as high intensity; exercise duration above the median was categorized as long.

For each patient the achieved metabolic equivalents
(METs), which is a measure of oxygen consumption by the heart, was calculated.
These "inactive activities" mean energy expenditure is less than or equal to 1.5 metabolic equivalents
, or METs," says Dr Ram Anil Raj, Consultant Interventional Cardiologist, Gleneagles Global Hospitals, Bangalore.
Physical activity (in metabolic equivalents
), bone mineral density and serum homocysteine levels were assessed.
Department of Health & Human Services call for physical activity of moderate intensity--three or more metabolic equivalents
(METs), or 150 minutes a week in intervals as short as 10 minutes at a time.
