Overview of major physiological factors affecting athletes’ aerobic fitness level


Author(s): Daniel Getnet Tasew

Abstract: The main purpose of this article was to review and discuss the current literature on the major physiological factors (i.e. Maximal oxygen uptake (VO2 max), running economy (RE), lactate threshold (LT), ventilator threshold (VT) and oxygen uptake kinetics) that affect athletes aerobic fitness level. Many coaches and trainers believed that athletes with higher VO2max have better performance, but a lot of studies have shown that VO2max is a poor predictor of endurance performance. Alternatively, running economy (RE), lactate threshold (LT), ventilator threshold (VT) and oxygen uptake kinetics also pridicts athletes’ aerobic fitness level. Experimental Approach to the Problem PRISMA guidelines was followed to conduct this review. 1754 Records were identified through Electronic data base and from these 450 articles was used for evaluation. 1304 records were exclude because of some articles are duplicates and the rest are conference proceedings. Finally, after evaluation for quality of articles 30 articles was used for this review. Based on the available literature this review draws evidence-based conclusions on the major physiological factors of athletes’ aerobic fitness level.
