These tests involve the last 2 min of an SPV on a treadmill does not affect the perceptually regulated stages in which subjects are asked maximal oxygen consumption that is elicited during that to maintain rating of perceived exertion values of 11, 13, test. Either pacing strategy can be used for this protocol 15, 17 and 20 for 2 min each. What is not clear is how the without compromising the results, when VO is the 2max last stage should be paced.
