Local blood flow was measured with 133Xe clearance technique in eight male distance runners, where one leg was cooled for 20 min by applying two "instant cold packs" on the quadriceps muscle. An initial cooling period after resting was followed by a second cooling period 10 min after running. Skin temperature was maximally reduced after 4.5 min of cooling, both at rest and after running, by 15 degrees C and 14.9 degrees C, respectively. During the first 5 min of cooling no reduction of blood… CONTINUE READING
