Physiological Adaptations to Training
“In this video we examined the physiological adaptations to training on the body’s cardiovascular system. By comparing the heart rates of two individuals, one a trained athlete and the other an untrained individual, we examined how increasing exercise intensity lead to an increase in oxygen demand to the working muscle and tissues which can be met by either increasing heart rate or stroke volume to ultimately increase cardiac output. Heart rate can only increase to a certain max, so how is the trained individual able to keep exercising at higher intensity while the untrained individual is not? To answer this we used an example using water guns to represent a beating heart. The trained individual was represented by a larger water gun, thus being able to pump out more “blood” per beat and the untrained individual was represented by a smaller water gun and had to fire faster in order to provide the same output. This is a metaphor to the cardiovascular adaptations to training. With training the hearts stroke volume increases and thus allows an individual to train at higher intensity when the heart rate has already reached its max. There are many other physiological adaptations to training consistently, this being one of the most important. If an individual can train their heart to perform more efficiently there is less strain placed on their heart, which can potentially help reduce risk of future cardiovascular disease and increase overall health.”

Exercise Physiologist Demonstrating VO2 Max Testing
“VO2 max (also Maximal Oxygen Consumption, maximal Oxygen Uptake, Peak Oxygen Uptake or Aerobic Capacity) is the maximum capacity of an individual’s body to transport and use oxygen during incremental exercise, which reflects the physical fitness of the individual. Maximal Oxygen Uptake (VO2 Max) is widely accepted as the single best measure of cardiovascular fitness and maximal aerobic power.”

What Is Lactate and How Does it Affect Your Performance? stack.com
“.. During demanding workouts (e.g., weight training and sprints), athletes are forced to deal with this limiting factor. But athletes are used to toughening up and dealing with pain. The moment when you begin to feel the burning sensation is called the lactate threshold. At that point, you’re still able to function but your energy is limited. After further effort, you reach a point where you can no longer push forward. This point is called the onset of blood lactate accumulation (OBLA), and it occurs when blood lactate concentrations are upwards of 90 percent.”..

The Performance Benefits of Lactate Threshold Testing and Training By Lindsay Hyman, CTS Pro Coach trainright.com
“..Your body has to clear the lactate from the blood and working muscles and process it back to useable fuels, and lactate threshold is the point at which production outstrips the clearing process and higher levels of blood lactate start to accumulate in the muscles. Lactate threshold can be determined through lactate threshold testing, verified within your training program, and used to make you stronger and faster…
Provided you’re training and striving to improve, regular lactate testing provides you and your coach with concrete evidence of improvement, or lack thereof, throughout the season(s). A history of lactate tests should show changes in fitness, characterized by: increased power and/or pace at threshold, improved recovery heart rate, a higher lactate threshold heart rate, and a higher pace or power-to-weight ratio….
Train Smarter and Race Faster with Lactate Threshold Testing thebodymechanic.com.au
What is lactate and lactate threshold?
Lactate is a fuel source produced when your body breaks down glucose for energy. When training at an easy aerobic intensity, lactate is converted back into energy and it’s concentration in your blood is kept constant. This process is called lactate clearance and this ability differs for everyone.
When pushing a higher intensity, the energy required goes up and more lactate gets produced to cope with the demand. Since your body effectively clears lactate at a fixed rate, the blood lactate concentration will keep rising till it eventually goes out of control. This tipping point is referred to as the lactate threshold.
To better explain this process, try pouring water down a funnel at a steady rate. Then gradually increasing the amount being poured. The funnel can only handle a fixed volume of water passing through and will overflow once maxed out…”

7 Foods You Should Never Eat Before A Workout by Rubby WilliamDecember 12, 2016 5:25 AM mindbodygreen.com
Dairy is delicious, but it can make you sleepy and sluggish. Therefore, you should avoid eating or drinking dairy two hours before a workout because it will make you feel acidic, lethargic, and you may even face extreme burping.
5. Protein bars
6. Fatty foods
When it comes to pre-workout foods that you should avoid, some of them are obvious: Think cheesecake, hamburgers, and so on. But you also may want to avoid healthy fats such as avocados and nuts, as they contain high fibers and up your chance for gassiness.
7. Fruit juice..
Almost all juices contain a high amount of natural sugars but less or zero fiber to help absorb energy. There’s no doubt that orange juice contains vitamin C along and other essential nutrients, but it allows you to use up energy from the juice instantly and suffer a drop in blood sugar level after the gym session.
Try eating an apple before starting your workout. It’s a much better choice; trust me.

Fiber is an essential part of your diet, although it is indigestible. As it passes through your gastrointestinal tract, fiber absorbs waste from your body, carrying it out as solid waste. Fiber can be either soluble or insoluble. Insoluble fiber adds bulk to your stool and slows digestion. Soluble fiber absorbs water, forming a gel, that speeds digestion and the passage of stool. Though important for overall health, both soluble and insoluble fiber produce undesirable effects during a marathon….”

Carbs Your muscles use the glucose from carbs for fuel.
For short- and high-intensity exercise, your muscle and liver stores of glycogen are your muscles’ main source of energy (3).
But for longer exercises, the degree to which carbs are used depends on several factors. These include the intensity, type of training and your overall diet (3).
Your muscles’ glycogen stores are limited. As these stores become depleted, your output and intensity diminish (4, 5, 6).
Studies have consistently shown the ability of carbs to increase glycogen stores and utilization while boosting carb oxidation during exercise (6, 7, 8).

Too Much Cardio Can Cause a 7-Fold Surge of Heart Problems June 01, 2012 • 503,630 views fitness.mercola.com
Long cardio workout sessions can cause more harm than good, leading to the release of the stress hormone cortisol, which when produced excessively may contribute to a catabolic state, in which your tissues break down, as well as chronic disease
Too much cardio, such as marathon running, raises cardiac risk by seven-fold, and can lead to heart muscle scarring, and increased blood levels of cardiac enzymes, which are markers for heart injury
To get the most benefits of exercise you need to push your body hard enough for a challenge while allowing adequate time for recovery and repair to take place; one of the best ways to do this is to follow a fitness regimen that includes short bursts of high-intensity activities, which can be done using an elliptical machine, recumbent bike or even free weights
When you work out, it is wise to push as hard as you possibly can a few times a week, but you need to wisely gauge your body’s tolerance to this stress, and give your body time to recuperate using rest and proper nutrition

What Is The Best Workout To Improve Aerobic/Anaerobic Endurance? bodybuilding.com
“.. What’s The Difference Between Aerobic And Anaerobic?
Aerobic means “involving or improving oxygen consumption by the body”. Aerobic exercise, therefore, enhances respiratory and circulatory efficiency by improving oxygen consumption. Aerobic movements require oxygen to generate force, and enlist slow-twitch muscles for activity over sustained periods of time (minutes to hours). Examples of aerobic exercise include cardio, jogging, cycling and running marathons. ..
The best way to increase aerobic endurance (in my opinion) is through cardiovascular exercises. These include skipping, jogging, walking, swimming, etc. I will include methods to increase aerobic endurance for the following 3 stages:..
Combining all those different workouts and techniques will yield the best anaerobic and aerobic endurance. Pay attention to the following factors:
The jogging interval training involves the Glycogen-Lactic Acid System and the Aerobic System. It develops the slow-twitch muscle fibers well and it produces an increase in endurance speed while jogging.
The weightlifting focuses on heavy compound movements such as deadlift, bench press, squat, military presses in a 6-12 range so the fast-twitch fibers are well activated. We focus on power ATP surge here so that both A and B type fast twitch fibers take part in the activity. We do drop sets to increase Lactic Acid resistance….

“… When you’re training for a race and logging a lot of miles, do your best to eat 200 to 300 calories within 30 minutes of your workout. If you’re into kicking your butt with HIIT, intense sprints at the track, or kickboxing, nutritionists agree: you need to refuel and recover with a combination of protein and carbs. Clinical and holistic dietitian Esther Blum recommends a protein smoothie that includes a highly absorbable carb like banana or mango because it “shuts down your cortisol levels and stress hormones and raises your growth hormone levels to help you build muscle mass.”..
To help combat post-workout hunger after moderate workouts, women’s strength-training expert and author of Lift to Get Lean Holly Perkins recommends making sure you have a nutritious meal two to three hours prior to your workout, or enjoy a light pre-workout snack 30 to 60 minutes beforehand.
