We compared the oxygen uptake (VO2) response of sprint- and endurance-trained runners for an exhaustive square wave run lasting approximately 2 minutes. Six sprinters and six middle- and long-distance runners each performed two exhaustive square wave runs lasting approximately 2 min and two exhaustive ramp tests. VO2 was determined breath-by-breath (QP9000;(More)
Introductory programming classes are renowned for their high dropout rates. The authors propose that this is because students learn to adopt a <i>fixed mindset</i> towards programming. This paper reports on a study carried out with an introductory programming class, based on Dweck's mindset research. Combinations of three interventions were carried out:(More)
Highly aerobically trained individuals are unable to achieve maximal oxygen uptake ([Formula: see text]) during exhaustive running lasting ~2 min, instead [Formula: see text] plateaus below [Formula: see text] after ~1 min. Hypoxia offers the opportunity to study the ([Formula: see text]) response to an exhaustive run relative to a hypoxia induced reduction(More)
Recent research in which data were averaged over 10 or 30 s suggests that the VO(2) response of aerobically fit individuals plateaus below VO(2 max) in an exhaustive square-wave run lasting approximately 2 min. To investigate this phenomenon we examined the breath-by-breath VO(2) response of trained runners to an exhaustive treadmill run at 800 m pace.(More)
