EPOC Lab 2
EPOC Lab # 2
Metabolic cart (previously warmed-up and calibrated)
Cycle ergometer (calibrated)
1. Stretch-out subject and have sit quietly on bike for VO2 measures.
2. Collect VO2 for 5 min.
3. Have subject start pedaling at 100 watts (60 rpm, 1.7 kp)
4. Measure VO2 every 30 sec.
5. Pedal for 10 mins
6. Stop pedaling and measure VO2 for 10 mins.
Purpose: To compare oxygen deficit to EPOC and to determine if the measured VO2 was equal to the estimated VO2 during a moderate intensity cycling effort.
Abstract: 350 words this week. You may write in groups of 2 or groups of 3. Same structure format to include an
Introduction - why????
Purpose – use the above typed statement
Methods – use above but re-write as appropriate
Results - see suggested calculations above and include
Discussion/Conclusion – Make sure your conclusion is related to your purpose. Expand this section as much as possible
Graph: Consider adding 1 or both of these graphs to your abstract.
1. Combination graph - VO2 vs time and estimated VO2 vs time.
2. Oxygen deficit and EPOC vs time
Introduction – 2 points, why is this important, how is it relevant,
