Short Title: Weighted Suit

Aims:
Using a novel weighted suit approach, this investigation will:

Determine cut-point values for strength-to-body weight and aerobic thresholds for sustained work performance (480 rung ladder treadmill test, 10 km treadmill test). Threshold values will contribute evidence for future Aerobic and or Muscle fitness standards.

Constitute a proof of methodology concept for the use of the weighted suit as a "deconditioning" analog that can be used for subsequent Critical Task Evaluations.
