  1. NOTE: All values expressed as Mean ± SE; UBP10 = 10-sec upper body power test; UBP60 = 60-sec upper body power test. Sample sizes remained at 12 subjects per group for both pre- and post-testing
  2. †The eight blood lactate samples (L1-L8) are labeled the same as those shown within Figure 1
  3. ‡Mean post-testing blood lactate value differed significantly (P < 0.05) from corresponding pre-testing value within the same test group
