Figure 2: Aerobic energy contribution to paddling power during 200-m and 500-m simulated race trials on a kayak ergometer. Aerobic energy contribution was estimated by oxygen consumption rate (1 L/min equivalent to 5 Kcal) as percentage of average power every 15 s above resting oxygen consumption level. Increased aerobic energy contribution occurred in parallel with declined stroke rate during the simulated trials. *Denotes significant difference against the first 15 s, P < 0.05.
