The 2016 Summit had a presentation on using Moxy for track and field sprinter tempo sessions. However, what about acceleration and max velocity sessions? A Max Velocity repetition may be 50 - 60m at 95 - 100% of best effort, ie 6 or 7 sec. I understand that the SmO2 recovery curve reflects the PCr recovery and can therefore determine when the athlete has recovered metabolically. What about the CNS component? Elite 100m sprinters typically take 1 minute for each 10m run at maximum velocity to allow the CNS to recover. I have no idea where this recovery time came from but it seems to be fairly universal. Is this a situation when it is not appropriate to use the Moxy?

HI Craig, I have utilized Moxy for Speed Endurance sessions. I am still cautious because the Pcr system can uncouple from the Smo2 readings so extra time may still be needed for recovery.  The CNS component I believe also needs to be taken into consideration.  Though when it comes to Sprint training quality is priority - so rest times need to reflect this.  Why rush?  As for Max Velocity work I don't use it as much. Other than seeing what type of contraction the athlete produces at top speed and while accelerating.  I have seen occlusion for some of my more seasoned sprinters and compression with the newbies. This may also give hints to strength training priorities as well.
