Spirulina Increases Exercise Performance

By: Natural Products Insider

Posted on: 02 Feb 2010

Spirulina supplementation induced a significant increase in exercise performance, fat oxidation and glutathione (GSH) concentration, and attenuated the exercise-induced increase in lipid peroxidation, according to an article published in Medicine & Science in Sports & Exercise (2010;42(1):142-151). Nine moderately trained males took part in a double blind, placebo-controlled, counterbalanced crossover study. Each subject received either 6 g/d of spirulina or placebo for four weeks. Each subject ran on a treadmill at an intensity corresponding to 70 percent to75 percent of their VO2max for two hours0 and then at 95 percent VO2max to exhaustion.

Enhancing Running Economy

Research links five training strategies with economical running

Running science evolves, but our views about running do not.

We still believe that lactic acid is a "waste product" which causes fatigue and soreness, even though it is actually a key muscle fuel. We think that high-mileage training is the most-effective way to boost aerobic capacity, even though high-intensity efforts work better. We swallow the idea that low ferritin levels produce tiredness, even though the ferritin-fatigue connection does not exist. We hold fast to the notion that strength training is "anaerobic" and can't boost VO2max and endurance performance, despite the fact that certain kinds of strength training create major upswings in both aerobic capacity and racing ability.

WORKING THE RIGHT SIDE OF THE VO2MAX EQUATION

Owen Andersen

RESEARCH SAYS THAT HITTING 100 PERCENT OF VO2MAX IS KEY

As a runner's maximal aerobic capacity (VO2max) increases, his/her performances generally improve.  A novice runner can often enhance VO2max by 20 to 25 percent with as little as 12 weeks of running training; an experienced runner might boost VO2max by 4 to 7 percent in the same time frame, given the right workouts.  Each 1-percent advance in VO2max can be linked with a one-half to 1 percent upgrade in race performances.

New Research from Finland Says Strategy Produces Unique Gains in Running Performance

Great new research from Finland reveals that adding simple, explosive routines to running workouts can produce major gains in performance for endurance runners. This is true even when the explosive drills replace regular running in the weekly schedule and thus lower total training volume (1).

OVERUSE MUSCLE DAMAGE IN RUNNERS: ARE THE PERFORMANCE EFFECTS "ALL IN THE HEAD?"

Owen Andersen

Scientists say muscle overuse changes RPE but not lactate threshold .....

Exercise scientists have not been certain about the effects of exercise-induced muscle damage (EIMD) on endurance running performance.  In mice forced to run downhill for extended periods of time (an activity which creates mayhem in the murids' quads), endurance capacity falls by about 65 percent during subsequent, sub-maximal running efforts (1)

Cycling may shortchange bones

By Jeannine Stein

22nd Oct 2007

Bone density increases from exercise involving more impact than cycling, such as running or soccer. A little high-impact exercise can help prevent osteoporosis, experts say. CYCLING is terrific exercise, hitting the cardiovascular system and major muscle groups simultaneously -- but it may not be the best thing for building strong bones. Compared with male runners, male cyclists appear more likely to have lower-than-normal bone density.

The Mechanics Of Max Running Speed

September 26, 2007

Owen Andersen
New Research From Finland "Brakes" It Down

Most athletes who run (and most coaches of athletes who run) would like to create training which optimizes maximal running velocity. After all, scientific research reveals that max running speed is an excellent predictor of competitive performance among endurance runners (1). Plus, the optimization of max velocity has obvious advantages for sprinters and soccer players.
