CT, continuous training; IT Intermittent training; CG, control group; the half time of the blood lactate removal; : Pre-training vs. Post-training values for blood lactate concentration at the beginning of recovery; : peak blood lactate concentration measured during the recovery; : time to peak lactate.
‡ p < 0.05: Significantly different from CT.
