The aim of this study was to investigate the influence of gender on the possible contribution of tlim at Va max (minimal speed that elicits VO2max) in performance speeds. The male and female elite middle-distance runners had similar performance (IAAF scores). Fourteen female and fifteen male (25.2 +/- 3.6 and 25.1 +/- 4.2 yr old; VO2max = 63.2 +/- 4.2 and 77.7 +/- 6.4 ml.kg-1 min-1; Va max = 17.3 +/- 0.7 and 20.8 +/- 1.1 km.h-1, respectively) performed three exercise tests on a treadmill (3… CONTINUE READING
