Physical measurements are BMI (Body mass index), body fat % and oxygen uptake using Coopers test. Blood pressure is also measured several times.
The psychosocial measurements are made with the POMS-(ProfilOfMoodStates)-profile which measures: Tenseness, anxiety, aggravation, vigor, fatigue and confuseness.
All measurements are made as pre- and posttests and some of them also made during the expedition, like the POMS-profile and blood pressure.
These dates can be read on our 3 blogs (Peak Promotion, Outside and everestbasecamp2009). They will also be found in an article in the monthly paper “Outside” (Swedish edition) April 2010.
