Central and regional circulatory adaptations to one-leg training

Journal of Applied Physiology: Respiratory, Environmental and Exercise Physiology
K KlausenJ Trap-Jensen


Six young healthy male subjects performed submaximal and maximal exercise on bicycle ergometers with one leg and two legs before and after 8 wk of one-leg training with each of both legs. The following variables were measured during one- and two-leg exercise: oxygen uptake, heart rate, mean arterial blood pressure, cardiac output, leg blood flow, and iliac arteriovenous differences for oxygen and lactate. After training the maximal oxygen uptake during one- and two-leg exercise was increased by 19 and 11%, respectively. The corresponding cardiac outputs increased by 16 and 11%, respectively. During submaximal one-leg exercise, heart rate decreased by 11%, whereas a decrease of only 2% was seen during submaximal two-leg exercise. Mean blood pressure decreased by about 10 Torr in both types of exercise and during both submaximal and maximal exercise. Maximal leg blood flow increased only by 1.2 l/min during one-leg exercise. Leg blood flow and leg oxygen uptake were smaller during two-leg exercise than during one-leg exercise and more so after training. These findings indicate that one-leg exercise, compared with two-leg exercise, involves circulatory adaptations that respond differently to one-leg training. The findings further ...Continue Reading
