A Study on the energy consumption of Awaodori-Taisou and Awaodori
Departmental Bulletin Paper
Purpose: the aim of this study was to measure an average energy consumption of Awaodori-Taisou and Awaodori.
Methods: The participants for this experimentation were composed of 13 males and 27 females, and the average age was 43. The breath was examined during the exercise of Awaodori-Taisou and Awaodori.
Result: The average energy consumption of Awaodori-Taisou was 12 kcal/time. When did it briskly, the energy consumption increased by 18%. In the case of senior version with sitting, the average was 8.6 kcal/time. The average of energy consumption of Awaodori was 5.7 kcal per minute. The average mets of Awaodori-Taisou was 3.3. Brisk Awaodori-Taisou was 3.9 mets. Senior version with sitting was 2.3 mets. Awaodori was 5.4 mets. The effect factors influencing energy consumption of Awaodori-Taisou were gender and custom of exercise. The estimate formula of energy consumption was made as follows:
Energy consumption (kcal) =
weight×0.2×1.1(if male)×1.1(if do exercise more than 3 times a week)×1.1(if do briskly)
The effect factors influencing energy consumption of Awaodori were gender and experience of professional group. The estimate formula of energy consumption and mets as follows:
Male (professional): 0.13 kcal × time (minutes) × weight: (7.5 mets)
Male (none-professional): 0.12 kcal × time (minutes) × weight: (6.5 mets)
Female (professional): 0.11 kcal × time (minutes) × weight: (6 mets)
Female (none-professional): 0.09 kcal × time (minutes) × weight: (5 mets)
Conclusion: The result shows that Awaodori-Taisou and Awaodori have effective intensity for life-style related disease. However, since the quantity of energy consumption of doing Awaodori-Taisou just one time is so little, those who wish to prevent life-style related disease have to do more exercise. Next subject is to measure 'Metabolic Syndrome Prevent Version of Awaodori-Taisou' which was released on November 2008.
