Laboratory based ergometers
(e.g., SRM, Lode, Velotron, Wattbike) are still considered the "gold standard" power meters due to their high levels of validity and reliability (Abbiss et al., 2009; Earnest et al., 2005; Hopker et al., 2010; Hopkins et al., 1999; Jones, 1998; Paton and Hopkins, 2001; Reiser et al., 2000; Wainwright et al., 2017).
The subjects' first testing day consisted of: (a) taking anthropometric measures; and (b) the performance of the first cycle ergometer
exercise test (CT) to exhaustion (IT).
Tests were performed on a stationary cycle ergometer
, a stationary rowing ergometer
, and a motorised stationary treadmill.

After consultation with a machinist at our medical center, all of the above design criteria were met and the calf ergometer
was designed and constructed.
Interestingly, most studies that investigate the potential relationships between force parameters, V[O.sub.2], lactate concentration ([Lac]) and performance over 1000 m use non-specific methods for kayakers (such as weight lifting or a cycle ergometer
for the upper limbs).
On the other hand, the Concept2 ergometers
only allowed symmetrical movements that resemble sculling, and investigators who focused on sculling had restricted measurements of the muscle activity to one side of the body (Nowicky et al., 2005; So et al., 2007).
It is possible that this phenomenon is the related to the ergometer
that was used in the different studies.

No studies exist which specifically addresses the effects of familiarization session on the use of ergometers
. Therefore, the main purpose of this study was to investigate how a familiarization session affects 30-s all-out test performed on an elliptical trainer compared to a cycle ergometer
