In the present study, 200-m swim time in highly trained male swimmers was measured on two consecutive days (Trial 1 and Trial 2) and under three conditions [(1) acute loading, AcL; (2) chronic loading, ChL; (3) Placebo, PLA]. No sodium bicarbonate (NaHCO3) was administered between Trial 1 and Trial 2 under each condition. Blood lactate concentration ([La… CONTINUE READING
