Hyperventilation-induced respiratory alkalosis falls short of countering fatigue during repeated maximal isokinetic contractions

Hyperventilation, implemented during recovery of repeated maximal sprints, has been shown to attenuate performance decrement. This study evaluated the effects of hyperventilation, using strength exercises, on muscle torque output and EMG amplitude. Fifteen power-trained athletes underwent maximal isokinetic knee extensions consisting of 12 repetitions × 8… CONTINUE READING
