/manager/Index ${session.getAttribute("locale")} 5 Patterns of physical conditioning in Royal Australian Air Force F/A-18 pilots and the implications for +Gz tolerance /manager/Repository/uon:11797 max) were determined in a sample of eight pilots using a progressive cycle ergometer protocol. Results: Of the 42 F/A-18 pilots who completed the questionnaire, 86% reported regular physical conditioning, mostly three times per week. Aerobic activities were the most common (83%), with running the most popular activity (55%). Anaerobic activities were reported by 26% of respondents. Most respondents reported doing more than one activity, with an average weekly training volume of 129 ± 77 min. The ergometer test results revealed a mean Vo₂max of 50 ± 6 ml 0₂ ·kg· min⁻¹ Condusion: The high rates of participation in regular physical activity suggest that physical fitness is perceived as important by the fighter pilot operating in the high +Gz environment. The fighter pilots in this study participated in aerobic activities at a much higher rate than anaerobic activities. The aerobic fitness levels measured suggest that the pilots have good but not exceptionally high levels of aerobic power that are unlikely to influence +Gz tolerance.]]> Sat 24 Mar 2018 08:13:10 AEDT ]]> The effect of baroreflex adaptation on the dynamic cardiovascualr response to head-up tilt /manager/Repository/uon:12190 Sat 24 Mar 2018 08:08:27 AEDT ]]>
