"This information will provide a valuable foundation on which our performance lab and others across the country can build in creating optimal training prescriptions and tools for triathletes and other endurance athletes of all ages," added Dr. Rand.

According to Morrison all study participants undergo a series of tests, which include body fat analysis, blood lactate threshold and VO2 max as well as heart rate and running and cycling economy - to observe metabolic cost of exercise and determine if the best triathletes are the most "economical."

"We are hoping to answer a few questions with this study, as well as address a debate in current literature regarding exercise economy and VO2 max.  This data will improve our understanding of the important physiological factors that affect performance and how best to improve the way we address those factors in establishing the most efficient training program," said Morrison.

The study investigators hope that the information gained from this and consecutive studies will establish useful physiological data that can be used to predict performance in sprint, Olympic and Ironman Triathlons - a valuable training tool for triathletes. Expanded study of the endurance athlete population will also include testing for swimming economy.

The lab also has the capabilities to help the overweight and bariatric population and future studies will address this group. Learn more about the Houston Methodist Human Performance Lab at methodistorthopedics.com, or call 281.737.0466.  Check us out on Faceboo
