Abstract:
Prolonged moderate intensity cycle exercise is associated with a gradual and progressive reduction in gross efficiency (GE). It was speculated that this loss of GE might reflect a reduction in maximal muscle function and result in a parallel decline in aerobic performance. The effect of prolonged moderate intensity cycle exercise on maximal muscle function and anaerobic performance has not been clearly established. This thesis examined the impact of 1-2 h of cycling exercise at 60-65% maximal aerobic power in well-trained cyclists on subsequent changes in aerobic and anaerobic performance, GE and maximal muscle function.
