Critical Power and VO2 kinetics with Mark Burnley, PhD | EP#257
Mark Burnley, PhD, is an exercise physiologist at the University of Kent. Mark's main research interests include oxygen uptake (VO2) kinetics, where an important application is how to optimally use warm-ups, as well as Critical Power, which forms the transition point (or transition area) between the heavy and severe exercise domains. Because of the non-steady-state nature of exercising above CP, it has significant importance in a large number of training and racing applications.
IN THIS EPISODE YOU'LL LEARN ABOUT:
-VO2 kinetics - what does it mean?
-The fast and slow components oxygen uptake
-Heavy priming exercise and its effects on VO2 kinetics (or the importance of a good, specific warm-up)
-Critical Power (CP) - what is it and how does it compare to other "threshold concepts"
-How to assess CP and use it in training
-How fatigue develops differently in the different exercise intensity domains (moderate, heavy, severe) and interventions to minimise fatigue
