Dr. Terry Dupler, Director of the Human Performance Lab and Associate Professor at the University of Houston solved the mystery on what is VO2 MAX & Lactate Threshold. Terry will give us an in-depth, yet simple presentation to help us unravel the importance and mystery of VO2 Max and Lactate Threshold and its importance to cyclist especially those with MS.

Terry will also tell us about different tests and analysis that his group conducts at Memorial Herman Sports Medicine Institute where he is the head of human performance testing. One in particular is a gait analysis. Your stride and gait is filmed, an analysis is conducted and recommended exercises are given back to help you improve your gait. I participated in this analysis and was very impressed.
