PURPOSE The purpose of this study was to determine whether substrate oxidation during submaximal exercise in women is affected by an acute exposure to 4300-m altitude and menstrual cycle phase. METHODS Eight female lowlanders (mean +/- SD; 33 +/- 3 yr, 58 +/- 6 kg, 163 +/- 8 cm) completed a peak oxygen uptake (VO2peak) and submaximal exercise to exhaustion (EXH) test at 70% of their altitude-specific VO2peak at sea level (SL) and during an acute altitude (AA) exposure to 4300 m in a hypobaric… CONTINUE READING
