Lactate (La) and H+-ions are unequally distributed in the blood between plasma and red blood cells (RBCs). To our knowledge there is no data concerning the effects of an oral ingestion of bicarbonate (HCO3 −) on repeated high intensity sprint exercise and La and H+ distribution between plasma and RBCs. Since an oral ingestion of HCO3 − leads to a higher efflux of La from the working skeletal muscle to the plasma, as it was shown by previous studies, this would lead to a higher gradient of La… CONTINUE READING
