Physiological requirements in triathlon
Keywords:Maximal aerobic power, Anaerobic threshold, Heart rate, Running economy, VO2 kinetics, Olympic distance, Ironman
This article aims to present the current knowledge on physiological requirements in Olympic distance and Ironman triathlon. Showing the data available from a "traditional point of view" (aerobic power, anaerobic threshold, heart rate, running economy) and from a "contemporary" point of view (V̇O2 kinetics), it emphasises where we are currently and the areas that remain unknown.
