Cyclists aged 18-35 needed for UWO exercise study

General News

Long duration training sessions have long been known to be a critical component to peak endurance performance. Surprisingly, not a lot is known as to why these sessions are so important. To this end  Glen Belfry PhD (exercise physiologist) and Mike Bitel (MSc student) at Western Kinesiology are doing a research study that requires performing two tests in the lab, going for a 90 k ride and then doing the same tests again. It does not require multiple days of testing just one. Information we will be able to give you is your critical power, anaerobic capacity, estimated lactate threshold, VO2 max , peak ATP-PCr power as well as peak anaerobic  glycolytic power. The age group we are looking for is 18-35 years. If you are interested please contact Glen (gbelfry@uwo.ca) or Mike (mbitel@uwo.ca). Knowledge is power!
