Maximal Time Spent at VO2max from Sprint to the Marathon.

Posted in Scientific

American Journal of Respiratory and Critical Care Medicine

The study showed that VO2max is clearly elicited in all distances from the sprint to the marathon. A fast start and the time to reach VO2max is important in increasing VO2 kinetics and to improve exercise tolerance. The K5 portable breath-by-breath sampling system was used to measure VO2 and carry out the scientific study.

Human locomotion naturally uses a variable pace running strategy, and it is time to break down the barriers between the so-called aerobic and anaerobic metabolisms. We can only achieve this by moving the laboratory outdoors and performing studies in real-world environments and racing conditions.

In this way, a new paradigm of applied physiology will be developed to provide new training and racing insights.
