BACKGROUND Stress fractures are frequent injuries among athletes. In vitro, decreases in pH stimulate osteoclasts and inhibit osteoblasts. We hypothesized that exercise-induced lactacidosis stimulates osteoclasts and reduces osteoblast activity in vivo. METHODS A total of 32 volunteers (MA, male athletes; MCo, male controls; female athletes; and female controls) performed three 60-min cycle ergometer tests at 75%, 95% and 110% of their individual anaerobic threshold (IAT). Blood was taken… CONTINUE READING
