91 mol/m3; it is claimed to be physiologically well defined and accounts for individual differences in energy metabolism and lactate kinetics. Since Yeh et al. (1983) indicated that anaerobic threshold determination through invasive means (arterial and venous lactate concentrations) is not detectable, and variability of anaerobic threshold detection by exercise physiologists reviewing ventilatory data is too large for clinical application, more positive definitions, such as the individual threshold, are needed.

Using ramp (linearly increasing) and square wave work rate inputs, they reported that the dynamic of oxygen uptake is linear and of constant first order (exponential) response, both below and above the anaerobic threshold. Therefore, any change in oxygen uptake in response to a step change in work rate is described as DV_ O2 (t) ¼ DV_ O2 (ss)(1 À eÀt=t ) (1:3:13) where DV_ O2 (t) is the oxygen uptake change with time measured in m3/s; DV_ O2 (ss) is the difference in oxygen uptake between the old and new steady-state values in m3/s; t is the time in s; t is the time constant in s.

And Rodahl, K. ) The exact mechanism limiting oxygen uptake has been the subject of controversy. Faulkner et al. (1971) suggest that the limiting mechanism is the rate at which blood can be pumped by the heart. With a higher capacity, more oxygen could be delivered to the muscles. 5 L/min) are typical for young (20 to values 30 years of age) male nonathletes (Astrand and Rodahl, 1970). 1 Â 10À7 m3 O2/kg s for a typical 68 kg man. Well-trained male athletes possess maximal oxygen uptakes twice as high as this, and untrained women have maximum oxygen uptakes 70% as large.
