Low-intensity physical activity is increasingly promoted as an alternative to sedentary behavior. However, much research to date has focused on moderate-to vigorous-intensity physical activity, and in particular dynamic work, with the effect of low-intensity isometric exercise (< 4 METs) on substrate utilization yet to be explored. Here we investigate the effects of such exercise on respiratory quotient (RQ) and determine the extent of intra-and inter-individual variability in response. Energy expenditure, RQ, and substrate oxidation …
