Effects of two weeks of intermittent hypobaric hypoxic training on body composition, aerobic performance, and oxygen saturation in male and female endurance athletes.
ABSTRACT
This study was designed to investigate the effects of gender on changes of body composition, aerobic exercise capacity, and %SpO2, shown by two weeks of intermittent hypobaric hypoxia training on in endurance athletes. Male soccer players (n=8) and female hockey players (n=9) underwent the exercise training (cycling 30 min & running 30 min, total 60 min) in 2,000 m-simulated hypobaric hypoxia environment every other day (six times) for 2 weeks. Pre-test and post-test were performed in sea level and 5,000 m-simulated hypobaric hypoxia before and after the training, and the data were compared by gender and test. Main results of the study were as follows: 1. No significant gender difference was shown in changes of body composition, except body weight. 2. No significant gender difference was shown in changes of aerobic exercise capacity in sea level. There were significant improvements of aerobic capacity in 5,000 m condition in male athletes, whereas there were no significant changes of the variables in female athletes, indicating that significant gender difference was found in the changes of aerobic capacity in 5,000 m condition. 3. No significant gender difference was shown in changes of %SpO2. It was concluded that the improvement of aerobic exercise capacity in 5,000 m condition shown by short-term intermittent hypobaric hypoxia training was greater in male athletes than in female athletes.
Key words: Gender, Altitude, Hypobaric, Aerobic capacity
