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

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

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
