In the previous two articles in this series, we wrote that an athlete’s maximal oxygen uptake – VO2max – is the most important element of aerobic performance. We also said that recent research has showed that the VO2max can be improved by increasing the heart’s stroke volume. Based on research studies, it is suggested that the most efficient way of increasing stroke volume (and therefore VO2max) is to do interval sessions at 90 – 95% of max heart rate (MHR).
