Looking for a VO2 max study

Answered on October 11, 2015
Created June 27, 2013 at 5:51 PM

There was a study a while back (a year ago?) that showed the brain was the limiting factor in VO2 max testing, and in the study they tricked the subjects into thinking they had already done a workload which was higher than their VO2 max, allowing them to attain a higher 'max'.... can somebody post that abstract here?

thanks!

Let me know if you cannot get the full text. I believe I have the PDF of this article on my archive somewhere.

I think this is what you are looking for: http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/22167716

Noakes has proposed this theory for years, and only recently have studies started to show the effect.

The bigger question is whether the brain's damping function is necessary or just an adaptation.

Quite interesting. I also found a post on Sweatscience which discussed whether VO2max could be influenced by mental state. I have noticed that my VO2max increases from 40 (38-42) to 42 and above when I am upset (problems at work, with landlady, while commuting). I got 45 several times in the past couple of weeks  and 48 today (train cancelled, have to postpone planned trip to next weekend).
