Before the tests, the players performed a general cardio-vascular warm-up with lower limb, (skipping rope, running and/or ergometric bicycle) and upper limb (rubber band) exercises.
Babies born to exercising mothers tolerate labour well and show less behavioural or biochemical evidence of undue stress in late pregnancy and labour.14 The objective of this research was to determine the impact of a home-based ergometric training during pregnancy on maternal and neonatal outcomes.

The aerobic training and IET were performed in a three-part ergometric treadmill for small-sized animals, each part with 7 individual lanes that allowed the animals to train isolated.
Outcome parameters demonstrated that maximal workload (MWL), left ventricular ejection fraction (LVEF) and pressure-heart rate product increase (PHRPI) at 50 W ergometric exercise improved more in active treatment than in placebo patients.
Passive stiffness of the ankle was evaluated by using an ankle ergometric device designed by the Universite de Technologie de Compiegne [24] and by applying sinusoidal perturbations with an amplitude of [+ or -] 1.5 on either side of the ankle neutral position to the ankle at rest (90).
RESULTS: Physiologic outcome parameters maximal workload (MWL), left ventricular ejection fraction (LVEF) and pressure-heart rate product increase (PHRPI) at 50 W ergometric exercise improved more in active treatment than in placebo patients.
Before testing, subjects performed standardized warm-up trials consisted of 6 minutes on an ergometric bicycle followed by a thorough explanation of the test procedure.
A total of 78.58% of the included studies reported warm up period along with passive stretching, calisthenics and range of motion exercises, ergometric bike exercise, free active exercises, and resisted active exercises in association or not.
However, tight controls over many ergometric parameters (such as isolation of the gastroc-soleus muscle group, range of motion, and force requirements necessary for work and power calculations) are lacking.
When comparing the mean MHR obtained by Petajan et al (11) during ergometric exercise testing of individuals with MS (175 beats/minute), to the mean 6MWT [HR.sub.max] obtained in the exercise group in the present study (110 beats/minute) the differences are apparent.
(8) The same research group then tested the effect of nine weeks' intake of 200 mg of ginseng extract (about 1 g of root) on the performance of 20 elite athletes in an open study using a graded ergometric test.
Linear Exercise Testing Protocol The patients performed a bicycle ergometric test using a linear increase in workload until volitional exhaustion was reached.
