Exercise Study Seeks Volunteers
Researchers in the Department of Nutrition are seeking volunteers for a research study involving a 30-second maximal effort cycling test and a shuttle sprint. The study’s purpose is to determine if one day of high protein intake impairs performance during high- intensity anaerobic exercise.
Want to Volunteer?
- Volunteers must be trained in moderate to high-intensity exercise.
- Be 18 to 50 years of age.
- Volunteers must be free of pulmonary disease, free of any medical conditions preventing volunteers from cycling or running or requiring medical clearance, non-tobacco users, not drinking excessive amounts of alcohol (>14 drinks/week), free from milk or soy allergies, and free from lactose intolerance.
- Volunteers must be able to commit to up to five (5) hours of their time over the course of 21 to 30 days to participate in the study.
Research will be conducted in the Allied Health Professions Building and at the SLU Medical Center Recreational Complex.
