Heart volume increases dramatically, to the point where it would be considered unhealthy for an untrained individual (see Chapter 3). At the same time, heart rate decreases and blood volume increases. Beyond that, movement efficiency increases because of a learning effect. Maximum oxygen uptake for a particular individual depends greatly on body composition. High metabolic rate and high maximum oxygen consumption follow increased muscle mass. Percentage muscle mass usually declines with age, and this may be a major contributor to the age-related decline of maximum oxygen uptake.

6 Exponential response Oxygen Uptake Kinetics Whipp et al. (1981) provided a short mathematical description of oxygen uptake transient changes. Using ramp (linearly increasing) and square wave work rate inputs, they reported that the dynamic of oxygen uptake is linear and of constant first order (exponential) response, both below and above the anaerobic threshold. Therefore, any change in oxygen uptake in response to a step change in work rate is described as DV_ O2 (t) ¼ DV_ O2 (ss)(1 À eÀt=t ) (1:3:13) where DV_ O2 (t) is the oxygen uptake change with time measured in m3/s; DV_ O2 (ss) is the difference in oxygen uptake between the old and new steady-state values in m3/s; t is the time in s; t is the time constant in s.

Rodahl, in Textbook of Work Physiology, McGraw-Hill, New York, 1970. _ ¼ 21:14 Â 103 V_ O2 (0:23 V_ CO2 =V_ O2 þ 0:77) M (1:3:8) _ is the metabolic rate measured in kN m/s; V_ O2 is the oxygen uptake in m3/s; where M _ V CO2 is the CO2 production rate in m3/s. 2). For very intense work, the value just calculated is too large because some of the energy to perform this work is obtained from anaerobic sources. Actual oxygen consumption may not be nearly as high as calculated. 5 and multiply by the oxygen consumption rate calculated previously.
