Criteria for determination of maximal oxygen uptake - A brief critique and recommendations for future research
Although the concept of maximal oxygen uptake ((V) over dot O-2max) was conceived as early as 1923, the criteria used to establish whether a true (V) over dot O-2max has been attained have beenExpand

The effects of multidirectional soccer-specific fatigue on markers of hamstring injury risk.
The purpose of this work was to investigate the effect of multidirectional soccer-specific fatigue on hamstring muscle strength and angle of peak torque. Sixteen male semi-professional soccer playersExpand

Effects of 4-wk training using Vmax/Tmax on VO2max and performance in athletes.
PURPOSE The aim of this study was to determine the effects of a 4-wk individualized training program using Vmax as the exercise intensity and utilizing between 60 and 75% of a subject's Tmax as theExpand

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

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

Sodium bicarbonate ingestion and its effects on anaerobic exercise of various durations.
Four groups of male subjects participated in anaerobic testing on a Repco EX10 cycle ergometer to determine the effectiveness of sodium bicarbonate (0.3 g kg-1 body mass) as an ergogenic aid duringExpand
