INTRODUCTION The total hemoglobin (Hb) mass of athletes is of increasing interest in the field of exercise physiology. Hb mass is an important determinant of oxygen uptake (VO2) and thus endurance performance. Furthermore, Hb mass might be useful in the screening for blood doping manipulations in endurance sports. Presently methodical advances allow a rapid and reliable determination of this variable. However, longitudinal data on Hb mass and the potential impact of training and/or… CONTINUE READING
