Physiology

Physical capacity, in a colloquial sense, means the ability for heavy or prolonged physical effort involving large muscle groups without rapidly increasing fatigue. Physical capacity also conditions changes in the internal environment of the body, as well as the ability to efficiently remove disorders of homeostasis. This is determined by the capacity of oxygen uptake (VO2max) and anaerobic threshold (PPA). Both of these parameters are widely used both in assessing overall efficiency, and determining training loads used in training and rehabilitation and recreation and sports.
