During ramp exercise the deoxy[Hb + Mb] pattern follows a sigmoid model [f(x) = f 0 + A/(1 + exp−(−c  + dx))], indicating a non-linear muscle blood flow $$ (\dot{Q}{\text{m}})/{\text{oxygen}}\;{\text{uptake}}\;(\dot{V}{\text{O}}_{{2{\text{m}}}} ) $$ -relationship. We hypothesised that in trained cyclists the sigmoid would display a rightward shift, due to an increased oxidative capacity and/or higher percentage of slow-twitch fibres. A total of 10 cyclists and 11 physically active students (PA… CONTINUE READING
