The aim of this investigation was to determine the effect of hypoxia on growth hormone release during high-intensity resistance training. In a randomised controlled trial, 16 resistance trained males completed two resistance training sessions in normobaric normoxia and hypoxia. Each session consisted of 5 sets of 3 repetitions of 45A? leg press and bench press at 85% 1RM. Hypoxia resulted in greater metabolic stress and growth hormone release but muscle activation was no different between the trials. IT appears that performing high-intensity resistance training in a hypoxic environment may provide a beneficial endocrine response without compromising neuromuscular activation.
