  • Data are mean ± SE.

  • aP, significant difference between the groups before bed rest.

  • bP, significant difference before vs. after bed rest within CON.

  • cP, significant difference before vs. after bed rest within FDR. ns, nonsignificant. REE, AEE, TEE, and PAL based on Actiheart recordings during 4 days of daily living 3 weeks before bed rest. Hours sitting per day based on International Physical Activity Questionnaire.
