The critical power (CP) of a muscle group or individual may represent the highest rate of work which can be performed for an extended period. We investigated this concept in young (n = 13, 24.5 years) and elderly (n = 12, 70.7 years) active men by first determining CP and then comparing responses elicited by 24 min of cycle exercise at power outputs (ω)(More)
OBJECTIVE To determine the effect of plasma volume change with short-term training and diuresis on left ventricular diastolic filling and exercise oxygen uptake (VO(2)) in older versus younger men. METHODS Eleven older (68 +/- 5 y) physically active (maximal oxygen uptake [VO(2max)] = 25.9 +/- 3.6 mL. kg-1. min-1) and 10 younger sedentary males (24 +/- 5(More)
