Recruiting for Gatorade Study

Hi, my name is Helena Rietschier and I am a graduate student at LSU in exercise physiology. Gatorade has funded a research project and we are in need of trained cyclists. Could you please pass the word on. If anyone is interested, please contact Laura Stewart (her email is in the information below) Thanks- Helena Rietschier

Well-Trained Cyclists Needed for a Gatorade Funded Project at LSU

We are recruiting highly trained males between the ages of 18-45 years. On 9 separate occasions, individuals will ride their own bike on the CompuTrainer in our laboratory. Preliminary measurements include VO2Max and lactate threshold tests. There will be 3 familiarization visits which will allow the participant to become familiar with the CompuTrainer, exercise intensity/duration and drinking fluid volume. After acclimation to the protocol, subjects will perform a 2 hour constant resistance ride set just below lactate threshold..They will then complete a simulated 20 kilometer time trial. Total compensation upon study completion: $535.00. If you are interested, please contact Laura Stewart, Ph.D. at for more information.
