The Effect of High Dose Salbutamol on Muscle Performance
This trial is active, not recruiting.
|Condition||ergogenic effects of salbutamol in healthy males|
|Collaborator||University of Copenhagen|
|Start date||August 2011|
|End date||August 2012|
|Trial size||20 participants|
|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.
|Intervention model||parallel assignment|
|Masking||double blind (subject, caregiver, investigator)|
Male participants from 18 years up to 45 years old.
Inclusion Criteria: - Males - age 18-45 - training frequency > 10 hrs/wk - informed consent Exclusion Criteria: - smoker or former smoker - chronic diseases, as well as asthma - allergy to the study drugs - intake of any form of medicin or inhibited drugs during the study - use of beta2-agonist 14 days before the intervention
|Official title||The Effect of High Dose Salbutamol on Dynamic and Isometric Muscle Power and Recovery in Well-trained Males|
