Abstract

Due to the current popularity of high intensity anaerobic training it is important to understand the possible risks. Rhabdomyolysis is a potentially life threatening syndrome that can result from over exertion. Creatine Kinase is commonly used as a marker of exercise induced muscle damage. The purpose of this study was to determine the magnitude of muscle damage associated with a single high intensity anaerobic training session, and the relationship of this response to initial fitness capacity. Sixteen recreationally trained male participants completed a single high intensity anaerobic training session. Prior to participating in the exercise program the athletes completed an aerobic capacity test, body composition analysis, and a military physical fitness test (1 min push-ups, 1 min sit-ups, 1.5 mile run). The high intensity training in this study used a 1:1 work to rest ratio involving plyometrics and calisthenics. Prior to the session the participants were subject to a 5ml blood draw using venipuncture technique from an anticubital vein. After 48 hours the participants returned for a follow up 5 ml blood draw. Serum from the blood was stored at -80°C until later analysis. CK was assayed using a photometrically based commercially available kit. Despite the high intensity level, it is not anticipated that the CK will reach the upper limits indicating rhabdomyolysis (881-1479 U/L) but will be elevated above resting. Additionally, it is anticipated that there will be an inverse relationship between muscle damage and fitness.
