ROSA, Eduardo Antônio et al. The influence of the maximum intermittent training of short duration on the aerobic performance. Motriz: rev. educ. fis. (Online) [online]. 2011, vol.17, n.1, pp. 189-194. ISSN 1980-6574. http://dx.doi.org/10.5016/1980-6574.2011v17n1p189.
The aim of this study was to analyze the aerobic performance of individuals who were submitted to a program of maximum intermittent training of short duration. For such investigation, fourteen subjects performed a set of tests, accomplishing a program of maximum intermittent training of short duration for eight weeks. Those tests consisted of the determination of the ventilatory threshold and the VO2max, using the gas analyzer VO2000. In order to compare the status of the variables, it was applied the student "t" test for paired samples, using p<0,05 as the significance level. By means of the data analysis, it was possible to verify that intense anaerobic stimulus could also provoke modifications in the aerobic condition, as it was observed in the improvement of the peak oxygen consumption and in the efficiency of the cardiac muscle, indicated by the behavior of the double product, of the individuals who were submitted to the training program.
