The purpose of this study was to assess the relationship of the heart rate deflection point (HRDP) to the ventilatory threshold (VT) in trained cyclists. Twenty-one endurance-trained cyclists (mean +/- SD: Vo(2)max = 67.6 +/- 4.7 ml x kg x min(-1)) completed a maximal cycle ergometer test of volitional fatigue using a ramped protocol. Ventilatory variables (Ve, Vo(2), Vco(2)) and power were measured online with averages reported every 20 seconds. Heart rate (HR) was recorded every 20 seconds… CONTINUE READING
