Illustration of the correlation between absolute VO2max values and FTP. The dashed line represents linear regression (y=0.67+0.01·x; adjusted R 2 =0.776). Solid dots represent "non-cyclists" and circles represent "cyclists". FTP = Functional threshold power; VO2max = maximal oxygen uptake.

Introduction: In endurance training variation of intensity is crucial, because intensity is ultimately linked to specific cellular adaptations. In cycling and other endurance sports, the assessment of physiological parameters such as maximal oxygen uptake (VO2max), lactate and ventilatory thresholds is considered the highest standard. However, in t...

... each independent variable (VO 2 max, VT1 and VT2) was introduced into a regression model in order to evaluate associations with FTP (dependent variable). A linear relationship between VO 2 max and FTP was assumed by visual inspection of the present data, as illustrated in figure 2, and based on their correlation coefficient (table 2). F-test analysis showed overall significance of the model (F(1, 12) = 45.907; ...

COVID-19 outbreak has a profound impact on almost every aspect of life. Universal masking is recommended as a means of source control. Routinely exercising in a safe environment is an important strategy for healthy living during this crisis. As sports clubs and public spaces may serve a source of viral transmission, masking may become an integral p...
