Condition(s) targeted: Ergogenic Effects of Salbutamol in Healthy Males

Intervention: salbutamol (Drug); Placebo (Drug)

Phase: N/A

Status: Active, not recruiting

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.
