High Intensity Exercise Study Guide 1. What is meant by a gap analysis and how does it related to analyzing an athlete’s training status? To calculate what is required to bridge the gap between the client’s current status, and what they need to achieve their business goal. The plan they implement is based completely on the outcome of the gap analysis. 2. What are the steps to a gap analysis? Determine the athlete’s goals. Then assess the athlete’s current level of fitness. Calculate the difference for each fitness component between the current and ideal fitness levels – this is the gap analysis. Design the training program that will improve each respective fitness area to the required level. 3. What is the relationship between running speed and oxygen uptake? Because oxygen provides nearly all the energy for any run longer than several minutes, swifter endurance runners must have higher rates of oxygen uptake (VO2) to support their higher running speeds. Lower maximal rates of oxygen uptake correspond directly to slower running speeds for any all-out effort lasting longer than several minutes. 4. Why are speeds that are sustained for only a few seconds independent of oxygen uptake? The metabolic power required for these bursts is believed to be provided almost entirely by anaerobic sources of muscular energy. 5. 200 m to 1500 m races are referred to as what type of speed event? These are referred to as endurance speed events.
