It is unclear if a constant sprint-to-rest ratio allows full performance recovery between repeated sprints over different distances. This is important for the development of sprint-training programs. Additionally, there is conflicting evidence on whe... Read More about The effects of a constant sprint-to-rest ratio and recovery mode on repeated sprint performance.

Intermittent exercise alters the heart rate-blood lactate relationship used for calculating the training impulse (TRIMP) in team sport players (2011)
Journal Article
Akubat, I., & Abt, G. (2011). Intermittent exercise alters the heart rate-blood lactate relationship used for calculating the training impulse (TRIMP) in team sport players. Journal of science and medicine in sport / Sports Medicine Australia, 14(3), (249-253). doi:10.1016/j.jsams.2010.12.003. ISSN 1440-2440

Objectives: The training impulse (TRIMP) quantifies training dose by weighting heart rate according to the relationship between fractional elevation in heart rate (Delta HR) and blood lactate concentration (BLa). This study compared the physiological... Read More about Intermittent exercise alters the heart rate-blood lactate relationship used for calculating the training impulse (TRIMP) in team sport players.
