Predicting Cycling Time To Exhaustion from Paraspinals Muscle Oxygenation

Our hypothesis is that the linear extrapolation of PS SmO2 during the work stage can predict time to exhaustion, when performed to task intolerance. Across both male and female subjects, we have seen that in 27 of 36 trials, both the vastus lateralis and paraspinals oxygenation slopes provide a reasonable prediction of TTE.

Comparing VO2 Master Pro to TrueOne 2400 – Part 2

The 5-1 assessment we run is a submaximal intermittent step test that uses NIRS and VO2 to identify physiological thresholds and training zones. I've mentioned it before. We use the general terms ‘Aerobic Threshold’ (AeT) and ‘Anaerobic Thresholds’ (AnT) for the first and second breakpoints respectively, and a polarized 3-zone model between these thresholds. The … Continue reading Comparing VO2 Master Pro to TrueOne 2400 – Part 2
