When training for maximal aerobic capacity, testing at similar intensities should be used. This whitepaper focuses on aerobic capacity and reveals some ideas behind it.
similar intensities TO THE INTENSITY OF A RACE? TO THE INTENSITY OF A PARTICULAR TYPE OF TRAINING? not sure what is meant by this. Sorry just me being thick…. You need to spell it out for those not so bright!
Answer to your question is on the second slide: “Therefore, if a training period was intended to stress the low intensity energy systems then the measurement validity would be higher if we test the athlete using similar intensities. Aerobic training has increased in recent decades in elite rowers and is the most important type of training for them.”
