The purpose of this study was to compare, during a 30s intermittent exercise (IE), the effects of exercise intensity on time spent above 90% VO2max(t90VO2max) and time spent above 95% VO2max(t95VO2max) in young endurance trained athletes. We hypothesized that during a 30sIE, an increase in exercise intensity would allow an increase in t90VO2max and t95VO2max due to a decrease in time to achieve 90% or 95% of VO2max. Nine endurance-trained male adolescents took part in three field tests. After determination of their VO2max and maximal aerobic velocity (MAV), they performed, until exhaustion, two intermittent exercise sessions alternating 30s at 100% of MAV (IE(100)) or 110% of MAV (IE(110)) and 30s at 50% of MAV. Mean time to exhaustion (t (lim)) values obtained during IE(100) were significantly longer than during IE(110) (p < 0.01). Moreover, no significant difference was found in t90VO2max or t95VO2max) expressed in absolute or relative (%t (lim)) values between IE(100) and IE(110). In conclusion, an increased of 10% of exercise intensity during a 30s intermittent exercise model (with active recovery), does not seem to be the most efficient exercise to solicit oxygen uptake to its highest level in young endurance-trained athletes.
