The aims of this study were to quantify the cardiorespiratory fitness level of amateur mountain runners and to characterize the related cardiorespiratory and muscular strain during a multistage competition. Therefore, 16 male amateur participants performed an incremental treadmill test before the Transalpine-Run 2010. Besides race time, heart rate (HR) was monitored using portable HR monitors during all stages, and countermovement jump ability was assessed after each stage. Overall race time… CONTINUE READING
