Anaerobic threshold and OBLA are determined during an incremental exercise test. , 1973). It is assumed that this point is highly correlated with the OBLA, but this may not be the case (Åstrand and Rodahl, 1986). POSTEXERCISE OXYGEN CONSUMPTION At the cessation of exercise, O2 continues to be consumed above basal rates as it declines in an exponential manner to resting levels. This is referred to as excess postexercise oxygen consumption (EPOC) or oxygen debt (Figure 3-8). The EPOC may only account for a small fraction of the net total O2 cost (NTOC) of exercise.

Oxygen deficit refers to the deficiency in VO2 that occurs at the commencement of exercise until the responding cardiorespiratory system meets the O2 demand of the tissues. The total O2 deficit that accumulates during exercise at supramaximal intensities is the MAOD, and this is the difference between the O2 demand and the actual VO2 achieved. The O2 demand is calculated by extrapolating from the linear relationship between VO2 and speed at submaximal intensities (Figure 3-6). minϪ1) 250 • VO2demand 200 • VO2 max 150 100 t 5 W9/( P 2ØPA ) 50 where t is the time to fatigue (s); P is power (watts); ØPA is power asymptote, or critical power, which represents the maximum sustainable power output or anaerobic threshold, and W9 is a constant representing anaerobic capacity or the finite amount of work that can be performed above ØPA (Figure 3-7).
