PURPOSE Effects of acute carbohydrate ingestion on blood lactate (BLa) response to graded exercise was examined in highly trained male and female swimmers. METHODS Twenty-three swimmers performed the United States Swimming Lactate Protocol, a graded interval test (5x200 on 5 min), following ingestion of carbohydrate sports drink (CHO) and placebo (PLA). RESULTS There was no difference in heart rate (P=.55), swim velocity (P=.95), or ratings of perceived exertion (P=.58) between beverages… CONTINUE READING
