First human tests of new biosensor that warns when athletes are about to 'hit the wall' - EXERCISE PHYSIOLOGY/ENERGY SYSTEM/FATIGUE

First human tests of new biosensor that warns when athletes are about to 'hit the wall' - EXERCISE PHYSIOLOGY/ENERGY SYSTEM/FATIGUE | Athletic Performance & Exercise Physiology | Scoop.it

Excerpt:

 

"Twenty-six years ago, Loren Cordain, a lifeguard turned exercise-physiology professor at Colorado State University, began an obsession with an influential 1985 paper published in the New England Journal of Medicine titled “Paleolithic Nutrition.” The paper laid out a compelling argument that the healthiest human diet looks a lot more like what our Stone Age ancestors ate than the sugar- and fat-laden food Americans mostly rely on. Intrigued, Cordain overhauled his own eating habits and was soon proselytizing about the benefits."

Woah! So interesting! Would athletes get a bad rep for using this during a race?

A new biosensor, applied to the human skin like a temporary tattoo, can alert marathoners, competitive bikers and other "extreme" athletes that they're about to "bonk," or "hit the wall," scientists are reporting.

YEAR 10/11/12 HPE - Responses to Exercise/Energy systems.

Hannah Chappell-Dick's curator insight, June 12, 2013 4:26 PM

Pre-Race

-epinephrine release: blood rushing to muscles, jitters

Swim

-Swimming take 4x more energy than running that distance

-thermoregulation easier in cool water

-produce ATP with less oxygen: anaerobic glycolysis

-epinephrine dulls discomfort

Bike

-dehydration causes loss in blood volume, less O2 gets to heart

-fat nearly unlimited resource, but won't keep you moving fast.. need electrolytes. and to build a new source of carbs for the run.

Run

-body starts eating muscle tissue for protein: catabolism

Post-Race

-susceptible to sickness due to low amino acid levels

I remember doing my only Full IronPerson back in 1991. I still have the Polar Heart Rate graphs for my bike and run. Fun physiology and fatigue! :-)

Interesting discussion on diet - is there a specific diet that works for everyone? even pro athletes? such a great debate
