Teste de VO2 na corrida e de mobilidade e torque do tornozelo

Hoje marquei de fazer a última das 5 coletas que realizei para o mestrado do meu amigo e ex-atleta Rodrigo Rosa. Fui até o Lapex (Laboratório de Pesquisa e Extensão) da Esef/Ufrgs, para um teste máximo (VO2 máx) de corrida, além de um exame de  mobilidade e torque da articulação do tornozelo, tanto em dorsoflexão (puxar o pé p cima) quanto em plantiflexão (empurrar o pé para baixo). 452 more words
