The purpose of this study was, firstly, to investigate the intensity of exercise performanceof highly trained ultra-endurance triathletes during the cycling portion of an Ironman triathlon, and, secondly, to examine the anaerobic threshold and its relationship to this performance. Following a peak oxygen consumption (VO2peak) test on a cycle ergometer to determine the heart rate (HRTh,vent) and power output (POTh,vent) at the ventilatory threshold (Thvent), 11 highly trained male triathletes… CONTINUE READING
