Evaluation of true maximal oxygen uptake based on a novel set of standardized criteria.
In this study, criteria are used to identify whether a subject has elicited maximal oxygen uptake. We evaluated the validity of traditional maximal oxygen uptake criteria and propose a novel set ofExpand

Is there an Optimal Training Intensity for Enhancing the Maximal Oxygen Uptake of Distance Runners?
The maximal oxygen uptake (VO2max) is considered an important physiological determinant of middle- and long-distance running performance. Little information exists in the scientific literatureExpand

Verification phase as a useful tool in the determination of the maximal oxygen uptake of distance runners.
This study investigated the utility of a verification phase for increasing confidence that a "true" maximal oxygen uptake had been elicited in 16 male distance runners (mean age (+/-SD), 38.7 (+/-Expand

Effects of different half‐time strategies on second half soccer‐specific speed, power and dynamic strength
This study compared the effects of whole body vibration (WBV) and a field‐based re‐warm‐up during half‐time (HT) on subsequent physical performance measures during a simulated soccer game. TenExpand

Warm-up strategies of professional soccer players: practitioners' perspectives
Abstract Recent research has challenged the typical pre-match and half-time (HT) interval warm-up (WU) routines currently used by professional soccer players. This study surveyed 2010/11 season WUExpand
