Current practices for estimating exercise economy using an extrapolation of sub-gas exchange threshold (GET), and indeed supra-GET, data will likely result an underestimation of actual economy, however, is yet to be empirically demonstrated. Despite contentions, these protocols remain in widespread use. Therefore, the aim of the present study was to investigate whether estimation of exercise economy from moderate only, and moderate and heavy intensity exercise underestimates actual oxygen cost.
