Fitness testing with COSMED Quark CPET for a junior cyclist (Australia)
Jesse Coyle, Bachelor of Exercise and Sports Science, from Nero Coaching (Australia), recorded a Cardiopulmonary Exercise Test with Quark CPET conducted on a junior cyclist at the Exercise Physiology Lab of the Australian Catholic University (ACU).
Information about the heart and lungs is collected to understand if the body’s response to exercise is normal or abnormal.
On the bike, the pedaling resistance will be increased, making it harder to maintain the proper pace.
The goal is for the exercise to become progressively harder until the point that the athlet is no longer able to continue, with the entire exercise period generally lasting 8-12 minutes.
It is important that the subject makes his best effort to exercise as hard as he can even if he feels uncomfortable to figure out what might be limiting the ability to exercise.
