Iron supplementation maintains ventilatory threshold
and improves energetic efficiency in iron-deficient non-anaemic athletes.
(Vt) was determined using the criteria of an increase in the ventilatory equivalent for oxygen (VE V[O.
University of New Hampshire associate professor of kinesiology Timothy Quinn and his former graduate student Benjamin Coons set out to learn just how good this test, gaining in popularity over the past decade, is, and how it compared to two other laboratory-tested measures of intensity, the lactate threshold and the ventilatory threshold
A study by Ahmaidi et al (31) investigating the effects of interval training on ventilatory threshold
and cardiorespiratory responses in elderly healthy individuals showed significant improvement of both maximal aerobic capacity and submaximal exercise tolerance, with a significant decrease in heart rate after a 3-month program.
Peak oxygen intake increased significantly in the TCC group after training and at the ventilatory threshold
, there was a significant increase in heart rate, VO2, pulse and ventilation.
This upper-limb interval-training program was adapted from the Square Wave Endurance Exercise Test (SWEET), which is specific and individualized at the ventilatory threshold
More recent research has demonstrated that exercise prescription should be based on percent of ventilatory threshold
(Bixby et al.
BMD increased at intensities above 110% of ventilatory threshold
and decreased at intensities below 110%.
Holland LJ, Bhambhani YN, Ferrara MS, Steadward RD: Reliability of the maximal aerobic power and ventilatory threshold
in adults with cerebral palsy.
The July, 2010 issue of Road Bike Action magazine featured results from cyclists who participated in a three-month ASEA trial, which resulted in an average of 10% more ventilatory threshold
endurance, with some cyclists experiencing an increase of more than 30%.
This approach suggests that ventilatory threshold
(VT) can be identified by an increase in breathing frequency and that respiratory compensation threshold (RCT) can be identified by a large increase in the perceived sound intensity.
2011) Validity of the modified conconi test for determining ventilatory threshold
during on-water rowing.
