EFFECT OF FASTING ON THERMOREGULATION BALANCE AND AEROBIC ENDURANCE IN MIDDLE-DISTANCE RUNNERS
This study aims to evaluate the influence of fasting on the balance of thermoregulation and the aerobic endurance performance in middle distance runners. 13 male athletes (aged 21-33), specialists in middle distance, were evaluated 11 days before the fasting period, then the 25th day of the fast and finally the 119th day after the end of the fasting period. In order to make the study operational, we took axillary temperature measurements before the preparatory warm-up and, also, just after the end of each running event over a distance of 3000 meters. Statistical analysis shows that the fasting period generates significant changes in thermoregulation balance and, also, aerobic endurance performance of middle distance runners.
Key words: fasting, balance, thermoregulation, aerobic, endurance.
