Abstract:
The purpose of this study was to investigate whether loads carried in a backpack, with a load mass ranging from 0 to 20 kg, causes respiratory muscle fatigue. Methods: Eight males performed four randomised load carriage (LC) trials comprising 60 min walking at 6.5 km h−1 wearing a backpack of either 0 (LC0), 10 (LC10), 15 (LC15) or 20 kg (LC20). Inspiratory (PImax) and expiratory (PEmax) mouth pressures were assessed prior to and immediately following each trial. Pulmonary gas exchange, heart rate (HR), blood lactate and glucose concentration and perceptual responses were recorded during the first and final 60 s of each trial. Results: Group mean PImax and PEmax were unchanged following 60-min load carriage in all conditions (p > .05). There was an increase over time in pulmonary gas exchange, HR and perceptions of effort relative to baseline measures during each trial (p < .05) with changes not different between trials (p > .05). Conclusions: These findings indicate that sub-maximal walking with no load or carrying 10, 15 or 20 kg in a backpack for up to 60 min does not cause respiratory muscle fatigue despite causing an increase in physiological, metabolic and perceptual parameters.
