The oxygen uptake kinetics during constant-load exercise when sitting on a bicycle ergometer were determined in 7 untrained subjects by measuring breath-by-breath VO2 during continuous exercise to volitional exhaustion (mean endurance time = 1160 +/- 172 s) at a pedal frequency of 70 revolutions.min-1. The power output, averaging 189.5 W, was set at 82.5% of that eliciting the individual VO2max during a 5 min incremental exercise test. Throughout the exercise period, the VO2 kinetics could be appropriately described by a two-component exponential equation of the form: VO2(t) = Ya[1 - exp(-kat)] + Yb[1 - exp(-kbt)] where VO2 is net oxygen consumption and t the time from work onset. VO2 measured at the end of exercise was close to VO2max (98% VO2max) and the mean values of Ya, ka, Yb and kb amounted to 1195 ml O2.min-1, 0.034 s-1, 1562 ml O2.min-1, and 0.005 s-1 respectively. The initial rate of increase in VO2 predicted from the above equation is slower than that calculated, for the same work intensity, on the basis of the data obtained by Morton (1985) in trained subjects. For t greater than 480 s, however, the two models yield substantially equal results.
