Abstract
The purpose of this study was to evaluate the effect of hypoxia (10.8 + or - 0.6% oxygen) on performance of 30s and 45s of supramaximal dynamic exercise. Twelve males were randomly allocated to perform either a 30s or 45s Wingate test (WT) on two occasions (hypoxia and room air) with a minimum of 1 week between tests. After a 5-min warm-up at 120 W subjects breathed the appropriate gas mixture from a wet spirometer during a 5-min rest period. Resting blood oxygen saturation was monitored with an ear oximeter and averaged 97.8 + or - 1.5% and 83.2 + or - 1.9% for the air (normoxic) and hypoxic conditions, respectively, immediately prior to the WT.
