Submaximal Tests
The tests described above are designed for maximal exercise testing, but in most protocols, there is a modified or different test designed for submaximal effort.


Submaximal Tests
Cycle Tests
Astrand-Rhyming Bicycle Ergometer Test
PWC170 Test
Tri-level aerobic test ...

Submaximal Being less than the maximum of which an individual is capable.

Submaximal means the athlete works below maximum effort. In sub maximal tests, extrapolation is used to estimate maximum capacity. Examples of submaximal aerobic test are the PWC-170 test and the Queens College Step Test.
Disadvantages of submaximal tests are: ...

Both submaximal and maximal isometric muscle actions can increase isometric strength (2,3,4) and induce muscular hypertrophy (5,6). In practice, maximal isometric exercises are used for strength and conditioning and submaximal exercises are used for rehabilitation (1).

3) Or use submaximal weight like 13-14RM and do all three sets at 10. This method is the one given in college weight training textbooks.
So which one is 3x10 commonly refer to?
Thanks in advance.

steady state submaximal aerobic exercise
walking speeds between 50 to 130 m/min (1.9-4.9 mph)
running at least 80 m/min (3 mph) as long as actually jogging and not walking
not holding onto hand rail
exercise is unaffected by mechanical efficiency such as wind, snow, sand, or gait abnormalities ...

The most common submaximal test procedures used for testing cardiovascular fitness are:
1. Cycle tests (Åstrand test, WHO cycle test, PWC170 test)
2. Step tests (Harvard step test, Queens College step test)
3. Walking tests (UKK Walk test, Rockport Walk test) ...

Typically testosterone responses to submaximal exercise are somewhat variable and seem dependent on the duration and intensity of exercise.

Aerobic energy cost and sensation responses during submaximal running exercise--positive effects of wearing compression tights. Bringard, A., Perrey, S., Belluye, N. EA 2991 Efficience et Déficience Motrices, Montpellier, France. International Journal of Sports Medicine, 2006 May;27(5):373-8.

Endurance events consist of many thousands of submaximal muscular contractions over an extended period of time, whereas Strength or Power training requires very few maximal or near maximal muscular contractions.

What you put in is what you get out, and submaximal intensities will yield submaximal results. The tougher the lift is, the better your body will respond.

Repetitive submaximal applications of muscular exertion (force), linear or non-linear in nature, forces your muscles to operate while in severe oxygen debt.

The women in the study also completed a continuous submaximal cycling test that covered three work stages: two 6-minute work stages below anaerobic threshold and one above anaerobic threshold performed to exhaustion.

In a recent study, eight males performed two 30-minute submaximal cycle ergometer exercise bouts-one at 40% of maximal oxygen consumption (VO2max) and one at 60% VO2max (Yamashita et al. 2006).

Lower heart rate and blood pressure at any level of submaximal exercise
Increased threshold for lactic acid accumulation
Lower resting systolic and diastolic blood pressure in people with high blood pressure
Increased HDL Cholesterol (the good cholesterol)
Decreased blood triglycerides ...

Because of the greater bar speed that can be produced in a submaximal intensity range, more force can be produced. Train with 55-82.5% of your 1RM in a core barbell movement and perform each rep as explosively as possible through the full range of motion.

Use compensatory acceleration. This means lift your submaximal weights with maximal force. Force = Mass X Acceleration; highest amounts of force happen at submaximal weights. This will help you eliminate sticking points and rid yourself of neural inhibitions.

The load you use will be submaximal - you don't try to reach failure on all sets; only the last three sets should be hard. Basically you get the training effect from the law of repeated efforts. Once you're able to complete 10 sets of 10 reps, you'll increase the weight by 2ó-5%.

The objective is to use a submaximal load to 1) work on perfecting technique and 2) work on being explosive with the weight.

Sixteen weeks of soccer and strength training for older, inactive men improved functional ability and physiological response to submaximal exercise7
Soccer also elevated the men's maximal aerobic fitness and exhaustive exercise performance8 ...

Glycogen sparing does occur after caffeine ingestion (5-9mg per kg/bw) in the early stages of submaximal exercise; however this cannot be conclusively attributed to caffeine's ability elevate the fat availability for use within the skeletal muscle.

Increased VO2, VE , and HR during submaximal work
Decreased lactate response
Increased basal metabolic rate
Chronic fatigue
Sleep and eating disorders
Menstrual disruptions
Headaches, gastrointestinal distress
Muscle soreness and damage
Joint aches and pains ...

Caffeine increases endurance during prolonged submaximal activity by increasing blood epinephrine (adrenaline) levels, thereby allowing fat cells to break down more readily during aerobic activity. Caffeine also makes a muscle contraction more forceful.

In a clinical setting, your HRmax can be tested using a stress test, usually done on a treadmill. If you are out of shape or the regular stress test cannot be administered, you can do a submaximal test to measure HR max as well.
3. Your HRmax is Your Cardiac Plateau ...

that will facilitate performing the exercise in a more enjoyable and effective. Spinning is an aerobic activity of high intensity, with moments that becomes anaerobic (without the presence of oxygen), so it is an exercise where the effort made ​​is of some significance, reaching submaximal ...
