A number of theoretical models have been proposed in recent years to explain pacing strategies observed in individual competitive endurance events. These have typically related to the internal regulatory processes that inform the making of decisions relating to muscular work rate. Despite a substantial body of research which has investigated the influence(More)
The anticipatory RPE feedback model (Tucker 2009) proposes that during self paced exercise tasks, muscular work is continually regulated through comparison of a subconscious 'template' Rating of Perceived Exertion (RPE) that serves to protect against the development of catastrophic physiological failure, and a 'conscious' RPE that is generated through(More)
The aims of this study were to (a) determine the relationship between performance on the court-based TIVRE-Basket test and peak aerobic power determined from a criterion laboratory-based incremental treadmill test and (b) to examine the test-retest reliability of the TIVRE-Basket test in elite male basketball players. To address aim 1, 36 elite male(More)
The aim of this study is to analyse the influence of performance level, age and gender on pacing during a 100-km ultramarathon. Results of a 100-km race incorporating the World Masters Championships were used to identify differences in relative speeds in each 10-km segment between participants finishing in the first, second, third and fourth quartiles of(More)

With the overall aim of understanding how both the psychological and physical systems contribute to the performance of an athlete, this RIG focuses on multi and interdisciplinary research. RIG members include physiologists, biomechanists and psychologists collaborating together on research projects which cover the spectrum of sport and exercise from cycling(More)
