The present investigation was undertaken to examine the relationship between plasma potassium (K+) and ventilation (VE) during incremental exercise. Blood lactate (La-) was also measured, and its relationship with VE was similarly examined. Eight endurance-trained triathletes (ET) and eight active but untrained men (UT) performed an incremental cycling test to volitional fatigue. Maximal oxygen uptake (VO2max) and oxygen uptake (VO2) at lactate threshold (LT) were higher (P < 0.05) in ET… CONTINUE READING
