Effect of stage duration on physiological variables commonly used to determine maximum aerobic performance during cycle ergometry.

In this study, we examined the effect of stage duration on physiological variables commonly used to determine maximum aerobic performance during cycle ergometry. Ten recreationally trained males (mean age 27.8 +/- 7.1 years; BMI 24.3 +/- 2.5 kg x m(-2); VO2max 52.5 +/- 5.9 ml x kg(-1) x min(-1)) performed three different stage duration protocols on two… (More)
