Oxygen uptake kinetics assessed in the frequency domain are known to be differentially faster in elite endurance runners than in elite sprinters. Breath-by-breath data from PRBS testing have routinely been analysed by application of Fourier methods, however, it is possible to analyse the data in the time domain in the form of a Total Lag Time (TLT). In this study, correlational techniques were applied to yield an output response to a work rate input. An autocorrelation function was performed on the input work rate (WR) and a cross correlation function was performed on input (WR) and output (vO₂). The cross correlation function was analysed by fitting a linear summation of the ramp form of a two-component exponential function to a triangular pulse. Twelve elite male sprinters and 12 elite male endurance runners completed 3 identical PRBS cycles of 300 s with 20 s work rate changes between 25 and 85 W on an electrically braked cycle ergometer at a pedal cadence of 1 Hz. Oxygen uptake was measured on a breath-by-breath basis using a respiratory mass spectrometer. Statistical analysis using the analysis of variance revealed significantly faster oxygen uptake kinetics (TLT) in the elite endurance runners compared with the elite sprinters (33.3 s 3.39SD and 39.91 s 7.14SD respectively) (p < 0.01). The results of this study show that time domain analysis represents a possible alternative to frequency analysis in the study of oxygen uptake kinetics described by PRBS exercise.
