Pulmonary oxygen uptake ( V ˙ O 2 ) kinetics following the onset of constant work rate exercise provides a useful assessment of the integrated capacity of the organism to transport and utilizes O 2 to support the increased rate of energy turnover in the contracting myocytes ( 104 ). The onset of

Aerobic fitness defines the ability to deliver oxygen to the muscles and to use it to generate energy to support muscle activity during exercise. Peak oxygen uptake ( V ˙ O 2 ), the highest V ˙ O 2 achieved during an incremental exercise test to exhaustion, is internationally recognized as the

Although many physiological and anthropometric parameters alone or in combination can be used to predict rowing performance in Olympic rowing (2000 m), the most important physiological determinant of rowing performance is maximal oxygen uptake ( V ˙ O 2 max , in L·min −1 ). 1 – 6 Regular

Nine male elite wheelchair athletes performed a continuous progressive exercise test on a wheelchair ergometer to determine peak oxygen uptake. Three were paraplegic distance track competitors (SCI–TR), three were amputee distance track athletes (AMP–TR), and three were paraplegic basketball players (SCI–BB). Analysis of variance indicated a significant difference in the relative peak oxygen uptake between the groups, with the SCI–TR and AMP–TR groups having higher values than the SCI–BB group. No group differences were found in age, mass, oxygen uptake, ventilation, heart rate, ventilatory equivalent for oxygen, and oxygen pulse at maximal exercise. The absence of the mass of the lower extremities in the AMP–TR group has a significant effect on peak oxygen uptake relative to body mass, and relative peak oxygen uptake differences between individual SCI–TR and AMP–TR athletes did not appear to reflect performance differences in actual distance track events.

The importance of exercise intensity in training adaptations is well established. 1 The intensity is often prescribed based on the percentage of maximal oxygen uptake ( V ˙ O 2 max ) or maximal heart rate. 1 – 3 However, due to a large intersubject variability, the recommendation of exercise

Maximal oxygen uptake ( V ˙ O 2 max ), typically expressed in relation to a measure of body size, is the “gold-standard” measure of cardiorespiratory fitness (CRF) ( 10 ). A valid measurement of V ˙ O 2 max is important in children and adolescents because a high CRF in youth is associated with a

Pulmonary oxygen uptake kinetics (VO 2 kinetics) is considered a noninvasive measure of an athlete’s capacity to utilize O 2 and respond to variations in energy demands. It is an important assessment of an athlete’s integrative physiological response 1 in both endurance sports 2 , 3 and team

Although many physiological and anthropometric parameters influence performance in Olympic rowing (2000-m), several studies have pointed toward maximal oxygen uptake ( V ˙ O 2 max ) as being the most important physiological predictor of 2000-m (2-km) rowing performance. 1 – 4 Pripstein et al 5

The transition from rest to exercise mandates an immediate increase in skeletal-muscle contractile activity and ATP turnover. In contrast, the rate of pulmonary oxygen uptake ( V ˙ O 2 ) increases with exponential response kinetics, 1 which closely reflects the kinetics of muscle V ˙ O 2 , 2
