The purpose of this study was to test the hypothesis that changes in exercise intensity dominate the PV response to cycle exercise in the heat independent of the initial plasma volume (PV) and total circulating protein (TCP) content. The two experimental treatments (counterbalanced design) were performed by nine trained male cyclists (age = 23 +/- 1 yr, VO2peak = 63 +/- 4 ml.kg-1.min-1) in both a euhydrated (EU) and hypohydrated (HP, 24-h fluid restriction) state. Blood volume was measured… CONTINUE READING
