The values derived from incremental exercise testing are the means of three tests for each subject. ΔV˙o2/ΔW˙ is the slope of the relation between oxygen uptake and work rate. η is the work efficiency derived from ΔV˙o2/ΔW˙ using the formula: η  =  288(ΔV˙o2/ΔW˙).6 See text for explanation of other symbols and abbreviations.
