Effects of glucocorticoid during repeated bouts of high-intensity exercise
Project Title: Effects of glucocorticoid during repeated bouts of high-intensity exercise
Researchers: M. DO, K Collomp, F. Prieur, O. Gagey
Institution: Laboratory CIAMS, France
Year approved: 2011
Summary: We propose to study whether short-term glucocorticoids (GC) administration would improve performance during repeated bouts of high-intensity exercise. In parallel, we will investigate with complementary methods the repercussions of GC administration on biomechanical (especially the magnitude of the braking of the fall during the swing phase), and physiological parameters (cardio-respiratory, muscular and inflammatory) in order to assess both GC ergogenic effects and health risks induced by short-term high dosage treatment.
