To determine how immune markers are affected by acute hypoxic exercise at the same relative intensity. Twelve endurance-trained males (age: 28 ± 4 years, $$\dot{V}$$ V ˙ O2max: 63.7 ± 5.3 mL/kg/min) cycled for 75 min at 70 % of altitude-specific $$\dot{V}$$ V ˙ O2max, once in normoxia (N) and once in hypobaric hypoxia equivalent to 2000 m above sea-level (H). Blood and saliva samples were collected pre-, post- and 2 h post-exercise. Participants cycled at 10.5 % lower power output in H vs. N… CONTINUE READING
