The purpose of this study was to investigate the effects of an immediate pre-exercise, orally ingested, sodium load (164 mEq Na+) (IPOSL), equivalent to 10 ml per kilogram of body weight, on plasma volume, endurance performance, and thermoregulation. Fourteen male participants consumed a nearly isotonic (255 mOsm . kg (-1)) IPOSL and a hypotonic (94 mOsm . kg (-1)), no-sodium, placebo beverage (Pl) equivalent to 10 ml . kg (-1) body weight in a randomized design. Subjects cycled at 70 % of… CONTINUE READING
