In addition, a gain in body fat and a decrease in lean body mass indicate the onset of disease and a decline in the level of physical activity. For this reason, it is difficult to determine exactly how much of the loss in capacity to exercise with age can really be attributed solely to the effects of aging. Nevertheless, the decline in cardiovascular or aerobic capacity with advanced aging is substantial. Pollock et al. (1997) reported greater than 30% decline in V_ O2 max per decade of aging in a 20-year longitudinal study in those who did not maintain high levels of physical activity as they aged.

91 mol/m3; it is claimed to be physiologically well defined and accounts for individual differences in energy metabolism and lactate kinetics. Since Yeh et al. (1983) indicated that anaerobic threshold determination through invasive means (arterial and venous lactate concentrations) is not detectable, and variability of anaerobic threshold detection by exercise physiologists reviewing ventilatory data is too large for clinical application, more positive definitions, such as the individual threshold, are needed.

Governs oxygen uptake dynamics. Oxygen deficit, taken as the accumulated difference between the oxygen intake and the energy equivalent amount of oxygen actually used, is ðt _ _ O2 D ¼ DV O2 (ss)t À DV O2 (ss) (1 À eÀt=t ) dt (1:3:15) 0 where O2D is the oxygen deficit measured in m3. 13 Oxygen uptake response to progressively increasing exercise work rate. Oxygen uptake would follow the work rate curve except for its exponential time response. With progressively increasing work rate, oxygen uptake always lags behind the ideal value.
