  The proximate composition, mineral, physical characteristics and in vitro digestibilities of cucumber (Cucumis sativus) were determined using standard methods of analysis. The results revealed that the mesocarp, epicarp and endocarp of the cucumber contained: 1.68, 3.84 and 0.22% of protein, respectively. The relative fat content varied from a low of 0.02% in endocarp to a high of 0.56% in epicarp, moisture and ash contents were comparable with values of literatures cited. As expected macro minerals were higher than the micro minerals. Na had the highest value followed by Mg, K and Ca. Pb was not detected. In vitro digestibilities of the samples were determined for 10 min. Percentage digestibilities varied thus: epicarp (68.5) mesocarp (78.2) and endocarp (80.5). From the obtained results, it was observed that epicarp of the sample had higher values for ash, protein, fat, fiber and carbohydrate than mesocarp and epicarp. It is hoped that these results would add to existing nutrition data.

High-intensity resistance training increases muscle size, but reduces arterial compliance. Muscular blood flow reduction (BFR) during low-intensity training has been shown to elicit muscle hypertrophy. However, the effect on arterial compliance is unknown. We examined the effects of walk training with BFR on carotid arterial compliance and muscle size in the elderly adults. Both BFR-walk training (BFR-W, n = 13, 66 ± 1 year) and control-walk training (CON-W, n = 10, 68 ± 1 year) groups performed 20 minutes treadmill walking at an exercise intensity of 45% of heart rate reserve, 4 days/week for 10 weeks. The BFR-W group wore pressure cuffs on both legs during training. Maximum knee joint strength (~15%) and MRI-measured thigh muscle cross-sectional area (3%) increased in the BFR-W, but not in the CON-W. Carotid arterial compliance improved in both BFR-W (50%) and CON-W (59%) groups. Walk training with blood flow reduction can improve thigh muscle size/strength as well as carotid arterial compliance, unlike high-intensity training, in the elderly.
