The purpose of this study was to investigate the effects of pre-exercise alkalosis on the physiological stress response to high-intensity exercise. Seven physically active males (age 22 ± 3 years, height 1.82 ± 0.06 m, mass 81.3 ± 8.4 kg and peak power output 300 ± 22 W) performed a repeated sprint cycle exercise following a dose of 0.3 g kg−1 body mass of sodium bicarbonate (NaHCO3) (BICARB), or a placebo of 0.045 g kg−1 body mass of sodium chloride (PLAC).
