Endurance training prescriptions are often based on laboratory measurements of physiological reference points, such as the ventilatory threshold (VT). This study evaluated the relationship between a simple surrogate of the VT, the Talk Test (TT), and objective measures of VT in well-trained individuals. This was a comparative study of the oxygen consumption (V02) in reference to TT, VT and respiratory compensation threshold (RCT).
