Abstract

Models of bioenergetic systems are developed to explain how a biological system behaves while interacting with the environment. Recent attempts in sport science research advocate the evidence-based training prescription and performance assessment and help in translating laboratory-based research into real world practice by the means of bioenergetic models. Such models have been developed for cycling activity for constant work rate or intermittent exercise for a single training session (e.g. critical power CP model and reconstitution of the anaerobic work capacity, (Chidnok et al., 2012, Medicine & Science in Sports and Exercise, 44(5), 966-976)), as well as for describing how the performance capacity changes over time (Clarke & Skiba, 2013: Advances in Physiological Education, 37, 134-152). The model here adopted (Moxnes et. al, 2012, Theoretical Biology and Medical Modelling, 9:29) claims to predict both oxygen consumption (V’O2) and lactate production [La]’ dynamically at a given power output requirement. In this work we model the bioenergetics processes involved in human exercise and recovery for the case of a cyclist in outdoor training.
