Hi all,

Attached are some graphs of 4 different individuals completing the 5-1-5 protocol at sea level at The Altitude Centre in London. 

Ellie - Ellie's sport is netball, so perhaps cycling isn't representative of her capabilities to take up oxygen at the muscle and exercise until exhaustion. 

James - a well trained cyclist, and the SmO2 trend would perhaps suggest that the cause of fatigue is due to the delivery of oxygen to the muscle - working at close to maximal HR values, based on the graph it would appear that O2 supply was a limiting factor?

Liam - a well trained cyclist, the lowest SmO2 was 18% (for a very short period of time) suggesting good utilization at the muscle. There was a bit of a HR blip during the 9th interval, and at the very start of the 9th so they can be ignored!

Sam - Sam's sport is football, so again cycling may not be the best mode of exercise to understand the information - but may also be a reason why Ellie and Sam's SmO2 graphs do not follow a similar trend to Liam and James. There was a bit of an issue with the moxy during the first 2-3 intervals as you can probably see from the data - the HR monitor also seemed to stop working for a short period during the penultimate interval, and stopped altogether midway through the last. 

Ellie, James and Sam will complete the 5-1-5 again tomorrow at a simulated altitude of ~2700m (15% O2), and Liam will complete his next Thursday and we will post graphs up. We will also use a pulseoximeter to monitor SpO2 during the tests for some added data.


Any feedback/analysis of the graphs would be interesting to hear - and will post up the altitude graphs tomorrow!

Attached are comparisons of sea level vs altitude (2700m) for Ellie and Sam. Further comparisons for James and Liam to follow.

Ellie was unable to complete the final effort during the hypoxic trial which is why HR and SmO2 recover during the last minute of this period.

Any comments welcome!

Attached is James' 515 comparison - as you can see from the graphs, James reached exhaustion at a much earlier stage during the altitude test than during the sea level test.

Any analysis/feedback appreciated!
