Beetroot Juice Doses and Anaerobic Performance

2016-09-29 23:08:21 | BioPortfolio


The purpose of this study is to examine the effect of varying nitrate doses of beetroot juice supplementation on dynamic, multijoint resistance exercise performance in active, trained individuals. Performance will be assessed based on parameters including neuromuscular efficiency, anaerobic performance capability, oxygen consumption, plasma nitrate/nitrite levels, specific muscle tissue biomarkers including lactate, and anthropometric measurements of select muscle groups.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

A sport in which weights are lifted competitively or as an exercise.

Alternating sets of exercise that work out different muscle groups and that also alternate between aerobic and anaerobic exercises, which, when combined together, offer an overall program to improve strength, stamina, balance, or functioning.

A cardiovascular exercise strategy with alternating short periods of intense anaerobic exercise with less-intense recovery periods.

The exercise capacity of an individual as measured by endurance (maximal exercise duration and/or maximal attained work load) during an EXERCISE TEST.

The oxygen consumption level above which aerobic energy production is supplemented by anaerobic mechanisms during exercise, resulting in a sustained increase in lactate concentration and metabolic acidosis. The anaerobic threshold is affected by factors that modify oxygen delivery to the tissues; it is low in patients with heart disease. Methods of measurement include direct measure of lactate concentration, direct measurement of bicarbonate concentration, and gas exchange measurements.
