Several indicators are used as indices of cardiorespiratory reserve. Among them, oxygen uptake (VO(2)) at peak and ventilatory threshold (VAT) levels are the most common used. In the present study, endurance training was used to evaluate and compare the usefulness of a new index, the Oxygen Uptake Efficiency Slope (OUES) as an alternative to the previous ones. Fifteen physical education student women participated in the study (8 as a trained group [T: age (mean +/- SD) 21.9 +/- 3.3 y, height… CONTINUE READING
