Example text

The capacity to extract oxygen from blood is much higher in endurance trained athletes. Consequently, the need to increase blood flow for the same amount of exercise is smaller, provided the exercise is performed at submaximal levels. At rest muscle blood flow is slightly lower than in untrained people. With maximal work load muscle blood flow increases more in endurance trained people than in control subjects; however the increase is similar to controls in sprinters. Experimental 2 Cardiovascular System 33 work that allowed measurements of flow in muscles with different muscle fibre composition showed that sprint training resulted in increased flow in fast contracting muscles with glycolytic metabolism with no change in slow contracting highly oxidative muscles while the reverse was true for endurance training (Fig.

40 Hz) leads to an increase in the number of capillaries similar to that achieved by low frequency stimulation, although the onset of the growth is delayed. Moreover, capillary and arteriolar growth can also be elicited by long-term administration of drugs that produce vasodilatation as the most important factor initiating vessel growth induced by electrical stimulation is increased blood flow. Changes in the vasculature in stimulated muscles occur much earlier than those induced by exercise training and are more homogeneous over the whole muscle.
