  • Physiological Aids
    • Blood Doping
      • a volume of blood is removed and frozen 4 weeks prior to the competition and re-infused 2hrs before the comp.
      • Benefits
        • increases RBC contents
        • Difficult to detect
        • 5-13% increase in VO2
        • increases aerobic capacity and intensity/  duration of performance
        • delays fatigue
      • Risks
        • easier to detect if someone else's blood is used
        • increased risk of infection (hepititis/HIV)
        • increased viscosity of blood
        • decreases Q
        • increased risk of blood clots
        • potential heart failure
    • Intermittent Hypoxic Training IHT
      • Risks
        • any benefits are quickly lost when IHT stops
        • easily lose motivation
        • hard to reach normal work rates
        • decrease immune function
        • dehydration
        • increased risk of infection
    • Cooling Aids
      • Benefits
        • treats injury
        • speeds up recovery
        • reduce muscle damage
        • decreases DOMS
      • Risks
        • can be very painful
        • can hide or complicate injuries
        • ice burns
        • chest area: causes shock, coronary arteries, can constrict
  • good for endurance events
  • ILLEGAL
  • Risks
    • easier to detect if someone else's blood is used
    • increased risk of infection (hepititis/HIV)
    • increased viscosity of blood
    • decreases Q
    • increased risk of blood clots
    • potential heart failure
  • increased aerobic energy production
    • Benefits
      • increase O2 carrying capacity
      • increased RBC and haemoglobin volume
      • increased rate of adaptation to training
      • delaying of OBLA
      • increased mitochondrial density and buffering capacity
      • increased intensity and duration
      • Intermittent Hypoxic Training IHT
        • Risks
          • any benefits are quickly lost when IHT stops
          • easily lose motivation
          • hard to reach normal work rates
          • decrease immune function
          • dehydration
          • increased risk of infection
