Abstract

PHOSPHATE LOADING HAS BEEN SHOWN TO INCREASE 2,3-DIPHOSPHOGLYCERATE (2,3-DPG). ELEVATED 2,3-DPG LEVELS LEAD TO A LOWERED AFFINITY FOR OXYGEN BY HEMOGLOBIN. WITH MORE OXYGEN AVAILABLE TO THE MUSCLE, INCREASES IN EXERCISE PERFORMANCE WOULD BE EXPECTED. THE PURPOSE OF THIS REVIEW IS TO DISCUSS PREVIOUS RESEARCH AND OFFER PRACTICAL APPLICATIONS.
