Acute loss of sleep produces few apparent physiological effects at rest. Nevertheless, many anecdotes suggest that adequate sleep is essential for optimum endurance athletic performance. To investigate this question, heavy exercise performance after 36 h without sleep was compared with that after normal sleep in eight subjects. During prolonged treadmill walking at about 80% of the $$\dot V_{O_2 } $$ max, sleep loss reduced work time to exhaustion by an average of 11% (p=0.05). This decrease… CONTINUE READING
