Bob was given and exercise prescription for 3-5 METS for his home exercise program. He is currently walking, and at the fitness center using a treadmill, walking 3.2 mph up a3% incline. Bob weighs 70kg. is Bob exercising in his prescribed zone?
METS = ???
1 MET = 3.5 mL of O2/kg of body weight/min
I have no idea what that means, but you should. In your course materials, there should be a formula (or maybe several formulae) you can plug these numbers in and then solve.
