UNLABELLED Often exercise intensities are defined as percentages of maximal oxygen uptake (VO2max) or heart rate (HRmax). PURPOSE The purpose of this investigation was to test the applicability of these criteria in comparison with the individual anaerobic threshold. METHODS One progressive cycling test to exhaustion (initial stage 100 W, increment 50 W every 3 min) was analyzed in a group of 36 male cyclists and triathletes (24.9 +/- 5.5 yr; 71.6 +/- 5.7 kg; VO2max: 62.2 +/- 5.0 mL x min(-1… CONTINUE READING
