The purpose of this study was tocompare the effects of intensity and duration of training on physical capacityin a 7 weeks hand rim wheelchair training in able-bodied men. Thirty-sixable-bodied men participated in three groups: a 30% heart rate reserve HRR 70min training group N = 14, a 70% HRR30 minutes training group N = 13and a 30% HRR 30 minutes training group N = 9. All groups trained 3 times per week for 7 weeks on a treadmill. Pre andpost tests on a wheelchair ergometer comprised a submaximal test at 20% and 40%of the estimated peak power output, in which submaximal heartrate, oxygen uptake and mechanical efficiency were determined. In maximalexercise tests, maximal isometric strength, sprint power, peak power output andpeak oxygen uptake were measured. No significant differences were found betweenthe training groups on submaximal and maximal parameters. It can be concludedthat, in persons new to wheelchair use, seven weeks of wheelchair endurancetraining at an intensity of 30% HRR for 30 minutes is as effective as atraining at a higher intensity 70% HRR or with a longer duration 70 min.
