More Research Volunteers Wanted

We are currently recruiting for a study involving 2 blocks of 9 group training sessions (3 weeks on, 4 weeks off, 3 weeks on = 18 training sessions (approx. 45 min each) over 6 active weeks) of repeated 6 second sprints to examine the effects of a nutritional supplement (2 capsules per day). We are conducting a double-blind randomised controlled trial evaluating the effects of brown seaweed extract on the immune system. At the completion of the study each participant receives $250 as well as summary reports for VO2 max, power output, and pathology.
