Below are links to three animated examples of adaptation and one for the maximal lactate steady state.

Press the link in the table below and it will take you to the example. All the examples work more or less in the same way. Namely, you press the button of the physiological parameter of interest and a curve will appear in the graph window indicating what happens to that variable during the exercise and training . The three charts on compensation and adaptaton shows you how your muscles adapt to training. The chart on the maximal lactate steady state shows the levels of blood lactate during various intensities of swimming.

A "Clear" button removes the curve when you wish.

When you are finished on each chart, click the back button on your browser and you will be brought back to this menu. These charts are based on Jan Olbrecht's book, "The Science of Winning" which is now an ebook.
