Exercise Training and Adaptations

You have been hired as a performance consultant for an elite marathon runner in Denver, CO.  The athlete is interested in non-nutritional, non-pharmacologic procedures that enhance physiologic response to exercise and increase performance and aid in recovery after exercise.  Based on the information in your textbook and your own research substantially address the following:

  • What are the pros and cons of each of the four procedures (Red Blood Cell Reinfusion, Erythropoetin injections, Warm up, and hyperoxic gas inhalation) discussed in the textbook?
  • How would you rank the procedures in terms of effectiveness and appropriateness for an elite marathon runner in Denver, CO?
  • Given the moderately high altitude of Denver, discuss which procedure(s) you would recommend, if any, to the athlete.  

Your research and claims must be supported by your course text and a minimum of one additional scholarly source.  Use proper APA formatting for in-text citations and references as outlined in the Ashford Writing Center.
