thesis / dissertation description
It is known that exercise performance may be improved if athletes select the optimal regulation of pace during exercise. Despite this knowledge, the best possible strategies that may delay the development of fatigue and ensure optimal performance during a variety of exercise tasks are not yet known. Thus, the primary purpose of the six research studies contained within this doctoral thesis was to describe pacing strategies and improve our understanding of factors that influence the regulation of intensity during self-paced exercise.
