Abstract

The influence of sprint training on endogenous urinary purine loss was examined in 7 active male subjects (age, 23.1 +/- 1.8 y; body mass, 76.1 +/- 3.1 kg; VO2 peak, 56.3 +/- 4.0 mL.kg-1.min-1). Each subject performed a 30 s sprint performance test (PT), before and after 7 d of sprint training. Training consisted of 15 sprints, each lasting 10 s, on an air-braked cycle ergometer performed twice each day. A rest period of 50 s separated each sprint during training. Sprint training resulted in a 20% higher muscle ATP immediately after PT, a lower IMP (57% and 89%, immediately after and 10 min after PT, respectively), and inosine accumulation (53% and 56%, immediately after and 10 min after the..
