Instructions:
10
PaceTime
1. Select the tecnhique (Front crawl, Backstroke, Breaststroke or Butterfly)
11
Speed [m/s]0.820.560.600.60
2. If you swim more than one tecnhique compute the energy expenditure of each one and at the end sum it
12
Distance [m]4,500.000.00250.000.00
3. Red cells are input data; Blue cells are outputs & calculations
13
RER0.850.850.850.85
4. Do not edit the blue cells. It includes several formulas
14
5. Insert the speed (in meters per seconds)
15
Energy cost [kJ/m]0.480.310.810.31
6. Insert the distance covered (e.g. the race distance or the training volume per session; in meters)
16
Energy cost [kJ]2,168.12Grams carb per hour out0.00202.270.00
7. Insert the RER (respiratory exchange ratio). If you swim at a:
17
NutritionEnergy cost [kcal]566.52518.1821.590.0048.340.00Slow pace
(e.g. A1 band - warm-up, recovery, cool-down sets):
RER = 0.7
18
Moderate pace
(e.g. A2 band - aerobic capacity sets):
RER = 0.85
19
ECHO [kJ]1,036.930.480.0096.740.00Intense pace
(e.g. A3 band - aerobic power, VO2max sets):
RER = 1.00
20
EFAT [kJ]1,131.190.520.00105.530.00
8. Blue cells between rows 15-17 provide us the total energy cost (in kJ/m, kJ and kcal)
21
Grams per hour
9. Blue cells between rows 19 and 20 provides the contribution of carbs (CHO) and fat (FAT) to total energy cost
22
CHO [g]60.2910.330.005.620.00
10. Blue cells between rows 22 and 23 provides the amount of carbs (in grams) and fat (in grams) that is needed to fuel
23
FAT [g]29.081.200.002.710.00
11. If you get a negative value for CHO or FAT, that should be consider as zero. I.e., that fuel source is not being used,
24
so it is 0kJ or 0g
