Seeking participants for study

June 24, 2012

Does a single bout of sprint training increase the total number of calories burnt in one day?

How many calories do you burn sprinting?

The Human Performance/Clinical Research Laboratory in the Department of Health and Exercise Science at CSU with The University of Colorado Anschutz Medical Campus is seeking men to participate in a new study on sprint exercise.

Participation in this study will involve exercise testing, measures of body composition, sprint exercise, and a two-day stay in the whole room calorimeter at The University of Colorado Anschutz Medical Campus, Denver.

Participants must be:
  • male
  • aged 18-40 years
  • body mass index < 30 kg/m^2
  • able to perform high-intensity exercise
  • willing to spend 48 hours at the University of Colorado Anschutz Medical Campus

Volunteers will receive financial compensation for participating in this study.

If you are interested in participating or want to know more about the study, contact the lab via email or phone at (970) 491-3495.

This study has been approved by the Institutional Review Board at CSU, and the Colorado Multiple Institutional Review Board at the University of Colorado Anschutz Medical Campus.
