Condition ergogenic effects of salbutamol in healthy males
Treatments salbutamol, placebo

Trial identifier NCT01415596, SALMUS2011


Many athletes use beta2-agonists as treatment of airway hyperresponsiveness during exercise. High dose beta2-agonists may have an ergogenic effect on exercise performance. We hypotheis that the beta2-agonist, salbutamol, taken in high doses can improve muscle power and recovery during exercise in well-trained athletes.
