DOSAGE OF PHYSICAL ACTIVITY USING DETERMINATION OF VENTILATORY ANAEROBIC THRESHOLD BY CARDIOPULMONARY EXERCISE TEST
Keywords:sport, training, load test, physical activity
Dosing physical activity is a very important segment in the exercise domain of every person, whether they are a child, an recreational person or a professional athlete.
The aim of this paper is to present the most optimal and direct method for assessing the functional status of an individual and to explain the way in which physical activity can be dosed most effectively using a Cardiopulmonary exercise test (CPET).
In this work, the descriptive method of conducting the CPET test was used as a standard for determining the beginning of physical activity, but also for determining training thresholds.
Adequate physical activity should be optimally dosed, neither too much nor too little, but sufficient to cause physical adaptation of the organism to effort.
In sport and physical activity, the heart rate parameter and the determination of the degree of fatigue in relation to the maximum heart rate of the person exercising are most often used to measure effort.
