The purpose of the present study was to determine the degree of fitting an approximation equation for oxygen uptake (Vo(2)) in decrement-load exercise (DLE). Work rate was started from 120 watts and was decreased by a rate of 15 watts per min. The initial work rate of DLE corresponded to 72+/-10% of the work rate at anaerobic threshold determined in incremental-load exercise (ILE). Vo(2) in DLE increased rapidly, reached a peak, and decreased linearly until the end of the exercise. Vo(2) in DLE… CONTINUE READING
