Laboratory exercise testing is a crucial tool for personalized training prescription in
endurance athletes, as well as for monitoring progress and evaluating performance [1].
Performance evaluation is significant for athletes, coaches, and trainers, especially if the
results are translated into recommendations for daily training [2]. These tests enable the
assessment of aerobic capacity and customization of exercise prescriptions according to
the specific profile of the sport discipline and the athlete [3]. The data gathered from
exercise testing offer valuable insights into physiological characteristics and adaptations to
controlled exercise loads [4]. They can even be used for talent selection and scouting for
potential future champions [5].
