Abstract:
Study compared the effects of circuit resistance training (CRT) on a multistation isointertial exercise system (MultiGym) or on a customized system of resistance bands (ElasticGym) by persons with paraplegia. No significant effects of test condition were observed on acute metabolic response or heart rate. Average rating of perceived exertion was significantly higher in testing under the ElasticGym condition.
