We tested seven physical education students whether 30-s sprint anaerobic exercise (Wingate test) would result in oxidative stress (evaluated by lipid radical levels) sufficient to alter plasma non-enzymatic antioxidant status (plasma uric acid, ascorbic acid, alpha-tocopherol, beta-carotene). This study demonstrates that 1) Wingate test increases plasma uric and ascorbic acid concentrations (p <.05), and decreases plasma alpha-tocopherol and beta-carotene levels (p <.05); 2) lipid radical… CONTINUE READING
