    • Abstract:
      The 2004 Athens Olympics will undoubtedly see many records broken. Improved performances will be attributed to better training, superior genes, or the use of performance-enhancing drugs, both legal and illegal. From a physiological perspective, one of the major limits to improved performance is the decline in muscle function as muscles are used intensively and repeatedly—a phenomenon called muscle fatigue. Many of the approaches used by athletes to enhance their performance, such as creating supplementation, carbohydrate loading, and training at high altitude, are targeted at the various pathways that contribute to muscle fatigue.
