The circadian effects of an aerobic training program were studied in 3 groups of men who exercised at different times of day. Twelve healthy sedentary men were assigned to morning (9:00-9:30), afternoon (15:00-15:30) or evening (20:00-20:30) exercise groups. Each group performed a 30-minute 60% VO2max cycle ergometer exercise 4 days per week over a 4-week period. Maximal oxygen uptake (VO2max) was estimated and adaptive responses of heart rate and blood lactate levels to the training program… CONTINUE READING
