Assessment of energy demand in Laser sailing: influences of exercise duration and performance level

  title={Assessment of energy demand in Laser sailing: influences of exercise duration and performance level},
  author={Olivier Castagna and Jeanick Brisswalter},
  journal={European Journal of Applied Physiology},
In this study we analyzed the influence of both exercise duration and skill level on energy demand in Laser sailing. Twenty-three subjects volunteered for this study. The population is divided into two groups according to their skill level: 13 high (HS) and 10 low (LS). Every subject performed a 30 min upwind sailing test, with a tacking every 2 min. Heart rate (HR), gas exchange and respiratory parameters were analyzed throughout the trial, and measured blood lactate concentration ([Labl] at… CONTINUE READING
