Abstract: Purpose: To investigate the effects of energy expenditure during walking at 100% to 75% while on a lower body positive pressure treadmill (LBPP) on energy expenditure in men classified as obese. Results: Total EE, EEFM, and EEFFM were significantly lower (p<.05) at 75% BW compared to 100% BW. Conclusion: Un weighting on the LBPP can is safe and can be used as an effective exercise modality to increase energy expenditure over time.
