Locomotor exercise induces long-lasting impairments in the capacity of the human motor cortex to voluntarily activate knee extensor muscles.
Muscle fatigue is a reduction in the capacity to exert force and may involve a "central" component originating in the brain and/or spinal cord. Here we examined whether supraspinal factors contributeExpand

Cortical voluntary activation of the human knee extensors can be reliably estimated using transcranial magnetic stimulation
The objective of this study was to determine if a transcranial magnetic stimulation (TMS) method of quantifying the degree to which the motor cortex drives the muscles during voluntary efforts can beExpand

Incremental Exercise Test Design and Analysis
Physiological variables, such as maximum work rate or maximal oxygen uptake (V̇O2max), together with other submaximal metabolic inflection points (e.g. the lactate threshold [LT], the onset of bloodExpand

Muscle activation of the knee extensors following high intensity endurance exercise in cyclists
Abstract This study was conducted to assess the effects in trained cyclists of exhausting endurance cycle exercise (CE) on maximal isometric force production, surface electromyogram (EMG) andExpand

Effects of hypoxic interval training on cycling performance.
PURPOSE The aim of this study was to test the hypothesis that intermittent hypoxic interval training improves sea level cycling performance more than equivalent training in hypoxia or normoxia. Expand

The effects of short-term sprint training on MCT expression in moderately endurance-trained runners
AbstractThe purpose of this study was to assess the effects of short-term sprint training on transient changes in monocarboxylate lactate transporter 1 (MCT1) and MCT4 protein and mRNA content. SevenExpand

Pacing during an elite Olympic distance triathlon: comparison between male and female competitors.
This study investigated whether pacing differed between 68 male and 35 female triathletes competing over the same ITU World Cup course. Swimming, cycling and running velocities (m s(-1) and km h(-1))Expand

Comparison of W(peak), VO2(peak) and the ventilation threshold from two different incremental exercise tests: relationship to endurance performance.
This report presents data comparing the peak rate of oxygen consumption (VO2(peak)), peak power output (W(peak)) and the ventilation threshold (VT) obtained from two different incremental cycleExpand

The consequences of swim, cycle, and run performance on overall result in elite olympic distance triathlon.
This study examined the consequences of performance in swim, cycle, and run phases on overall race finish in an elite "draft legal" Olympic distance (OD) triathlon. The subjects were 24 male athletesExpand

Maximising performance in triathlon: applied physiological and nutritional aspects of elite and non-elite competitions.
Triathlon is a sport consisting of sequential swimming, cycling and running. The main diversity within the sport of triathlon resides in the varying event distances, which creates specific technical,Expand
