Muscle Oxygenation Response Profiles during 5-1 Cycling Assessment

Oxygenation Response Profiles represent the SmO2 trend as a function of progressive exercise intensity measured at the vastus lateralis. Two general profiles have been observed that may reveal some so-far unexplained, but apparently systematic physiological variance between subjects of differing fitness and muscle tissue typology. Unexplained variation means we still have something to learn about human physiological response to exercise.
