Research output: Contribution to journalMeeting Abstractpeer-review


Graded exercise tests (GXTs) can be used to determine peak oxygen uptake (VO2peak) and the lactate threshold (LT), and are commonly employed by sport scientists and coaches to evaluate and prescribe exercise training. Two critical methodological choices that influence these indices are GXT stage length (for VO2max and the LT), and the method used to calculate the LT. However, there has been little investigation of the effects of these choices on the validity of the derived indices.
