Table 1 Ambient conditions, ergometer calibration setting and initial body mass on the day of each trial

From: The effect of turmeric (Curcumin) supplementation on cytokine and inflammatory marker responses following 2 hours of endurance cycling

  Curcumin Placebo Control
Mean ambient humidity (% RH) 63 ± 6 (59–67) 62 ± 7 (58–66) 62 ± 6 (58–66)
Mean ambient temperature (°C) 19.9 ± 0.6 (19.5-20.3) 20.0 ± 0.4 (19.8-20.2) 20.1 ± 0.5 (19.8-20.4)
Calibration value of computrainer 2.7 ± 0.1 (2.6-2.8) 2.7 ± 0.1 (2.6-2.8) 2.8 ± 0.1 (2.7-2.9)
Body mass (kg) 86.7 ± 10.5 (80.5-92.9) 86.6 ± 10.4 (80.4-92.8) 87.5 ± 11.0 (80.7-94.3)
Training (Hours×Intensity) 11 ± 10 (5–17) 13 ± 9 (8–18) 13 ± 6 (9–17)
  1. Habitual training load during the previous week was assessed using duration and intensity information. Training is reported in hours multiplied by intensity. Intensity was classified as low (1) medium (2) & high (3) Data are mean (± SD). Standard deviation and 95% confidence intervals are also reported following each value. No differences were noted between trials groups. Calibration value of the Computrainer is the value given to the ergometer as instructed by the manufacturer.
