Abstract:

Body weight BW and lean body mass LBM of sea-level SL residents are typically reduced by 4 and 2, respectively, while endurance performance is greatly impaired initially but then improves during the first 3 weeks of altitude exposure. This purpose of this study was to determine if a greater reduction is LBM due to severe energy intake deficit will eliminate the performance improvement despite maintenance of a high carbohydrate CHO diet.
