Exercise Thresholds

Consider taking part in a research study that uses different techniques, including EMG, VO2, and heart rate, to examine aerobic/anaerobic thresholds during three different maximal aerobic exercise tests. We are recruiting aerobically trained males and females to help us study different types of exercise thresholds and methods to assess the thresholds. A threshold is when our body switches from using oxygen (aerobic) to create energy to methods that used things like stored sugar (anaerobic) to create energy. This study involves 4 total visits for a total of 4-5 hours. After this study you can be provided with your VO2max and several of these thresholds.

Inclusion Qualifications:

  • Are ages 18-50
  • Aerobically trained males and females (an average of 150 or more minutes of moderate to vigorous aerobic running or cycling per week for the past 6 months)
  • Are willing to come in for all testing visits
  • No known cardiovascular, pulmonary, metabolic, muscular, and/or coronary heart disease
  • No current injury that would limit the ability to exercise on a stationary bike
  • Do not regularly use prescription medication other than birth control
  • Are not seeking medical care for a condition that would alter the response to exercise
  • Not currently pregnant
