Abstract
Using 9 subjects, each of whom walked over 300 miles during the summer months and in all kinds of weather, a comparison was made on the basis of the measurement of energy cost, sweat loss, and rectal temperature between field and chamber (treadmill) exercise. A light clothing system, moderate work rate, and temperate environment treadmill exercise at a given Wet Bulb Temperature indoors is equivalent to the same exercise out-of-doors performed on a level gravel and paved road at the same temperature as a Wet Bulb Globe Temperature.
