 = 0.28), with EE which was calculated from DLW by accounting for resting metabolic rate from indirect calorimetry and the thermic effect of food ( Colbert et al., 2011 ). However, objective measures were superior than subjective measurements, including CHAMPS, when assessing PA in older adults

. The activity protocol had been validated against indirect calorimetry and doubly labeled water ( 29 ). EE was calculated using the compendium of physical activities to determine the appropriate MET values for each activity performed ( 1 ). The MET values are multiplication factors of the BMR. In the

the incomplete stage, T was the total time (s) set for the complete stage (in this case, 120 s) and increment of speed of 1.0 km·h −1 per stage. VO 2 max was determined during the incremental test using indirect calorimetry equipment (Quark; Cosmed, Rome, Italy), which was calibrated prior to each

making it difficult to quantify time spent using screens. Although researchers have objectively measured sedentary behaviors through instruments that assess daily energy expenditure (eg, accelerometers and indirect calorimetry), 5 these objective measures are relatively expensive and do not provide

Future work could expand upon these findings by examining additive or sustained effects of LPA throughout a day. Another limitation to this study was the use of a controlled laboratory

practically significant, but research should be conducted with a true measure of energy expenditure. Although we cannot say for sure if energy expenditure is affected by wearing a PMU, it would be implausible to conduct the current study with indirect calorimetry, as the traditional metabolic cart is too

Previous work reported that the Harris–Benedict equation is a valid measure of energy expenditure with a minimal difference of 391 kcal/d compared with gas exchange values using indirect calorimetry. 21 Corrected   MET   intensity   =   mean absolute   MET   per activity × ( 3.5 / Harris

In the same study, high-frequency cell phone users reported greater participation in sedentary activities and fewer physical activities than their low

measurements were performed within 12 min. Jockeys were then required to have RMR measured in a supine position using indirect calorimetry (Metalyser, Thatcham, UK). Jockeys were required to lie down for an initial 15 min before testing to allow for the dissipation of movement from the dual-energy X
