" which features in my Research Review 106, .
We talk about the metabolism of muscle in sprinting efforts, the role of muscle fiber type, the effects of beta 2 agonists in muscle power generation in sprint effects and the prolonged effects on performance. We talk about doping and WADA support for research into the effects of doping and Jens’ current projects outside this study.
