Validity of oxygen uptake cut-off criteria in plateau identification during horizontal treadmill running (2018)
Journal Article
Marsh, C. (2018). Validity of oxygen uptake cut-off criteria in plateau identification during horizontal treadmill running. Journal of Sports Medicine and Physical Fitness, 59(1), 10-16. https://doi.org/10.23736/S0022-4707.18.07952-5

BACKGROUND: When determining achievement of maximal oxygen uptake (VO2max) during treadmill running using speed increments, the VO2 cut-off criteria applied during plateau identification is often not justified, not protocol specific, or not related t...

Evaluation of the American College of Sports Medicine submaximal treadmill running test for predicting Vo2max (2012)
Journal Article
Marsh, C. (2012). Evaluation of the American College of Sports Medicine submaximal treadmill running test for predicting Vo2max. Journal of Strength and Conditioning Research, 26(2), 548-554. https://doi.org/10.1519/JSC.0b013e3181bac56e

The purpose of this study was to assess the validity of the American College of Sports Medicine's (ACSM's) submaximal treadmill running test in predicting V̇o2max. Twenty-one moderately well-trained men aged 18–34 years performed 1 maximal treadmill...

The role of hypocapnia in the development of syncope during orthostatic stress following plasma volume expansion
Presentation / Conference
Marsh, C., & Ernsting, J. The role of hypocapnia in the development of syncope during orthostatic stress following plasma volume expansion. Poster presented at Physiological Society Conference 2004 (J555P), University of Cambridge, United Kingdom

Hypotension is considered to be the cause of syncope during lower body negative pressure (LBNP). However, hypocapnia induced by hyperventilation has been observed in subjects preceding syncope, and may contribute to the onset of syncope by reduci...

Accuracy of the Polar FT40M heart rate monitor in estimating energy expenditure during treadmill running
Presentation / Conference
Marsh, C., & Pender, D. Accuracy of the Polar FT40M heart rate monitor in estimating energy expenditure during treadmill running. Poster presented at British Association of Sport and Exercise Sciences (BASES) Conference 2015, St. George's Park, Burton upon Trent, Staffordshire, United Kingdom

Estimation of energy expenditure (EE) from heart rate (HR) monitors has been reported to provide inaccurate predictions of EE during exercise by some studies, whilst others have reported good predictive accuracy. Some of the discrepancies reported co... Read More about Accuracy of the Polar FT40M heart rate monitor in estimating energy expenditure during treadmill running.

Comparison of blood lactate concentration between the Biosen C-Line and the Analox GM7 lactate analysers during incremental exercise
Presentation / Conference
lactate analysers during incremental exercise. Poster presented at British Association of Sport and Exercise Sciences (BASES) Conference 2016, East Midlands Conference Centre, Nottingham, UK

Analysis of blood lactate profiles can be used to prescribe training. However, lactate concentration often varies between different lactate analysers, with some analysers measuring higher than others – often dependent on whether the device measur...

Does a high-intensity warm-up benefit 5-km running performance?
Presentation / Conference
Marsh, C., & Kilcourse, N. Does a high-intensity warm-up benefit 5-km running performance?. Poster presented at British Association of Sport and Exercise Sciences (BASES) Conference 2014, St George's Park, Burton upon Trent, Staffordshire, United Kingdom

Research investigating the most effective warm-up intensity for subsequent running performance is somewhat varied. When compared to a low-intensity warm-up, Ingham et al. (2013, International Journal of Sports Physiology and Performance, 8, 77–83) fo... Read More about Does a high-intensity warm-up benefit 5-km running performance?.

The effect of cleat position on cycling performance in competitive cyclists
Presentation / Conference
Marsh, C., & Harrison, N. The effect of cleat position on cycling performance in competitive cyclists. Poster presented at British Association of Sport and Exercise Sciences (BASES) Conference 2013, University of Central Lancashire, United Kingdom

Optimising bicycle set-up is important with respect to cycling performance and includes variables such as seat height, seat tube angle, stem length and frame proportions. Another potential factor for consideration is foot position on the pedal. Wh... Read More about The effect of cleat position on cycling performance in competitive cyclists.

The effect of mouthguard use on ventilatory response to submaximal exercise
Presentation / Conference
Marsh, C., & Manders, J. The effect of mouthguard use on ventilatory response to submaximal exercise. Poster presented at British Association of Sport and Exercise Sciences (BASES) Conference 2013, University of Central Lancashire, United Kingdom

Mouthguards are used in a number of sporting activities to help protect against dental damage. Despite the protective benefits of wearing a mouthguard, it is possible that their use may impair oral breathing during exercise, and some sports person...
