    keyword : prolonged exercise, exercise intensity, distributin of haeart rate
    1998.04~2012.03To estimate exercise intensity during mountain hiking, frequency distributions of heart rate and specific gravity of urine were investigated. Fourteen male (60.6±5.5yr) and 20 female (55.8±6.1yr) subjects participated in mountain hiking to Mt. Sangun (935.9m). Mean heart rate and peak heart rate during hiking were 129.0±10.8 and 162.9±13.0 beats/min, respectively. The peak heart rate was 102.2±9.7% of maximal heart rate. There was a significant difference between the specific gravity of urine (SG) before (1.021±0.004) and after (1.028±0.005) hiking (p<0.01). The frequency histogram of heart rate showed three normally distributed sub-populations which correspond to low (population 1), moderate (population 2), and high (population 3) exercise intensities. Proportion of the three populations was 19.5±17.1%, 51.9±14.0% and 28.6±11.3% of all frequency of heart rate during hiking, respectively. There were no significant relationships between SG and mean or peak heart rate during hiking. Also, there was no relationship between SG and distribution 1. Yet, there were significant relationships between SG and the rate of distribution 2(r=-0.371,p=0.03) and distribution 3 (r=0.401,p<0.02), respectively. These findings indicate that the rate of frequency distribution of heart rate is an effective means to determine the intensity of mountain hiking, regardless of mean heart rate or peak heart rate..
