For high-intensity cycle ergometer exercise, the tolerable duration (t) is well characterized as a hyperbolic function of power output, P : t = W'/(P-thetaF), where thetaF may be termed the "fatigue threshold." The purpose of this study was to determine the effect of oral creatine (Cr) supplementation on the curvature constant parameter (W') of the power-duration curve. A double-blind research method and a cross-over design were employed for creatine/placebo supplementation. Eight healthy male… CONTINUE READING
