Volunteers wanted for research study

The Exercise & Sports Performance Unit of Victoria University in Melbourne is looking for healthy males and females (18-40 years) to participate in a study investigating the effects of mild electrical stimulation (painless) on performance and recovery following exercise-induced muscle damage.

All cycling standards are welcome. The tests will be conducted at Victoria University, Melbourne, through January and February 2007. The following tests will be conducted:

- Tests to determine leg strength, power, maximal aerobic power (VO2max) and high intensity-short duration cycling
- 1 bout of stepping exercise for 45min
- Low frequency electrical stimulation therapy
- Blood samples to investigate muscle damage
