Training intensity zones derived from a classical 3-zone model based on ventilatory thresholds in comparison with training intensity zones based on FTP according to the model by Allen and Coggan (2012, p. 67). 3ZM = 3-zone model; FTP = Functional threshold power; LT = Lactate threshold; VO2max = maximal oxygen uptake; VT1 = First ventilatory threshold; VT2 = Second ventilatory threshold

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...

Context 1
... research has argued that training intensity based on submaximal markers elicits significantly higher adaptations ( Wolpern et al., 2015) and recent studies examining intensity distribution (Esteve-Lanao, San Juan, Earnest, Foster, & Lucia, 2005) have used the first and second ventilatory thresholds to define three intensity zones. Figure 6 depicts a comparison of training intensity zones derived from the classical 3-zone model and the model proposed by Allen and Coggan (2012, p. 67) based on mean power output at ventilatory thresholds and mean FTP, respectively. For the sample of the present study the average power output at VT1 was found to be at 80.2% FTP (SD = 12.4%) and the average power output at VT2 was equivalent to 135.8% FTP (SD = 11.1%). ...
Context 2
... derivation of training intensity zones based on FTP is illustrated in figure 6. By visual inspection it becomes apparent that FTP underestimates VT2 considerably. ...

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...
