Below are links to three animated examples of adaptation and one for the
maximal lactate steady state.
Press the link in the table below and it will take
you to the example. All the examples work more or less in the same
way. Namely, you press the button of the physiological parameter
of interest and a curve will appear in the graph window indicating
what happens to that variable during the exercise and training . The three charts on
compensation and adaptaton shows you how your muscles adapt to training. The chart on the
maximal lactate steady state shows the levels of blood lactate during various intensities of
"Clear" button removes the curve when you wish.
When you are finished on each chart, click the back button on
your browser and you will be brought back to this menu. These charts are based on Jan
Olbrecht's book, "The Science of Winning"
which is now an ebook.
