To assess the relationship of exercise test variables to each other and to bike race times in an ultra-distance triathlon, we studied 24 participants (14 men, 10 women) in the 1985 Hawaii Ironman Triathlon, using a graded, maximal cycle ergometer test with gas exchange and blood lactate (LA) measurements at each work load. Exercise test variables were oxygen uptake (VO2) and heart rate (HR) at the lactate and ventilatory thresholds. Lactate threshold (LT-1) was defined as the exercise intensity… CONTINUE READING
