Is a Submaximal 6-min Exercise Test Protocol to Assess HRC of Running Considered Valid to estimate vVO2max of Recreational Runners for both Treadmills & Outdoor Tracks?

Research Paper Title Heart rate cost of running in track estimates velocity associated with maximal oxygen uptake. Background Running velocity associated with VO2max (vVO2max) is a parameter widely used for exercise prescription and is related to endurance performance. However, the vVO2max determination usually requires a maximal effort test and equipped laboratory for expired gas analysis,… Read More

Run Slower to Run Faster!

Your muscles and heart need to be strong and your energy systems need to be taught how to work properly, and that takes time and care. Amongst other things, your exercise professional should prescribe lots of slow running, at a really easy heart rate. This is because slow (running) work gives you a long-term gain… Read More

Road Running vs Treadmill Running

“RUNNING BATTLE Runners have long debated the difference between training on a treadmill and training on solid ground. “Belt turnover” is commonly cited as a factor that helps to move your foot backwards and there by makes running on a treadmill easier than running on the road. At constant velocity, is this a real effect? If so, wouldn’t… Read More

Assessing the Validity of Kinetic-based Algorithms for Detecting Gait Events

Research Paper Title A comparison of kinematic-based gait event detection methods in a self-paced treadmill application. Background Kinematic-based algorithms for detecting gait events are efficient and useful in the absence of (reliable) kinetic data. However, the validity of these kinematic-based algorithms for self-paced treadmill walking is unknown, particularly given the influence of walking speed on… Read More

Overground vs Treadmill Running: What the Difference?

Research Paper Title Comparison of Lower Extremity Kinematic Curves During Overground and Treadmill Running. Background Researchers conducted gait analyses utilising both overground and treadmill modes of running. Previous studies comparing these modes analysed discrete variables. Methods Recently, techniques involving quantitative pattern analysis have assessed kinematic curve similarity in gait. Therefore, the purpose of this study… Read More
