Abstract : Man's capacity to work has been quantitated by exercise physiologists utilizing the measurement of maximal oxygen uptake and the determination of submaximal exercise endurance time. The measurement of maximal oxygen uptake requires specially trained personnel and is not suitable for assessment of work capacity outside of the laboratory. Endurance testing requires a considerable period of time and trained personnel, and the results from such testing are highly dependent upon the motivation of the subject. A neuroendocrine profile consisting of growth hormone, norepinephrine, cortisol and epinephrine were measured during submaximal work loads of mild, moderate, and severe intensities. A comparison of the profile was made during exhaustive exercise at two different work loads (moderate and severe). (Author)
