The maximal muscular power (both instantaneous, w, and average, w-.) and the cross-sectional area of the left thigh (CSA) were measured on six subjects before (B) and after (A) prolonged exposure to high altitude (above 5000 m asl). w and w were determined during a standing high jump off both feet on a force platform, and CSA by computed tomography. It was observed that: (1) in B, body weight (BW) = 74.1 +/- 5.8 kg, w = 3330 +/- 460 W (44.8 +/- 3.4 w-. = 1795 +/- 395 W (24.6 +/- 4.3 W… CONTINUE READING
