Project description

The CP concept is a relevant model in almost any (sporting) situation in which activities are spent at high intensities. This projects aims to facilitate the direct monitoring of energy balance during exercise in individuals by means of accurate quantification of W’ reconstitution kinetics, and based on CP and W’ of the individual.
