Effects of an Athlete′s Weight Reduction on the Level of Serum Enzyme and Myoglobin
Wang Jianfang et al
This is a study of the effects of an athlete's weight reduction on the level of serum enzyme and myoglob-in(Mb) in his/her body. Results of the study show that a fast reduction of bodyweight contributes to a risein the level of serum enzyme and Mb and adversely affects rehabilitation after exercise. Animal experimentshave indicated little morphological change in muscular tissues that is associated with active increase in serumenzyme caused by bodywight reduction. A slow reduction of bodyweight results in a slow recovery of theserum LDH level but produces no effect on the serum CPK or Mb level.
