The aims of this study are examine the effects of sleep deprivation in muscle recovery after a maximum eccentric resistance exercise session performed on an isokinetic dynamometer (24 series of 10 repetitions). The sample will consist of 10 men, sedentary, clinically healthy, aged between 20 and 31 years old. Two experimental groups will be developed: EXE-SLEEP, in which subjects will perform the exercise protocol (~18:00-19:00) and will be subject to normal period of sleep for 3 nights; EXE-TOTAL, in which subjects will perform the same exercise protocol and will be sleep deprived for 60 hours, followed by one night of sleep rebound.
The blood parameters analyzed will be:
- Creatine kinase and myoglobin: before, immediately after, 2, 4, 12, 24, 36, 48, and 60 hours after exercise protocol.
- Total and free testosterone, IGF-1, and cortisol: before, immediately after, 2, 4, 12, 24, 36, 48, and 60 hours after exercise protocol. Moreover, from 19:00 of the second day to 19:00 of the third day it will be collected blood samples every 2 hours.
- GH: during the second night, GH will be evaluated every 1 hour, from 23:00 to 07:00.
- TNF-alfa, IL-6, IL-1 beta, IL-10, and IL-1ra: before, immediately after, and 2 hour after exercise, as well every 4 hours from 19:00 of the second day to 19:00 of the third day.
It will be evaluated isometric strength every 12 hours, as well visual analog scale of pain.

Sleep deprivation is associated with impaired immune responses, cancer, and morbidity and mortality, and can degrade cognitive performance, although individual differences exist in such responses. Sle...
Cognitive bias to sleep-related information is thought to be a core feature of sleep disturbances. The bias may enhance pre-sleep arousal, such as excessive worry about sleeplessness, which prevents p...
Periods of sleep manifested by changes in EEG activity and certain behavioral correlates; includes Stage 1: sleep onset, drowsy sleep; Stage 2: light sleep; Stages 3 and 4: delta sleep, light sleep, deep sleep, telencephalic sleep.
Dyssomnias (i.e., insomnias or hypersomnias) associated with dysfunction of internal sleep mechanisms or secondary to a sleep-related medical disorder (e.g., sleep apnea, post-traumatic sleep disorders, etc.). (From Thorpy, Sleep Disorders Medicine, 1994, p187)
Movements or behaviors associated with sleep, sleep stages, or partial arousals from sleep that may impair sleep maintenance. Parasomnias are generally divided into four groups: arousal disorders, sleep-wake transition disorders, parasomnias of REM sleep, and nonspecific parasomnias. (From Thorpy, Sleep Disorders Medicine, 1994, p191)
The state of being deprived of sleep under experimental conditions, due to life events, or from a wide variety of pathophysiologic causes such as medication effect, chronic illness, psychiatric illness, or sleep disorder.
A sleep disorder of central nervous system origin characterized by prolonged nocturnal sleep and periods of daytime drowsiness. Affected individuals experience difficulty with awakening in the morning and may have associated sleep drunkenness, automatic behaviors, and memory disturbances. This condition differs from narcolepsy in that daytime sleep periods are longer, there is no association with CATAPLEXY, and the multiple sleep latency onset test does not record sleep-onset rapid eye movement sleep.
