Physical Exercise Combined with Whole-Body Cryotherapy in Evaluating the Level of Lipid Peroxidation Products and Other Oxidant Stress Indicators in Kayakers

Table 3

Selected morphological parameters of the blood of kayakers during a 19-day training cycle with two WBC sessions per day for the first 10 days, one before an exercise bout (morning stimulation) and one after an exercise bout (afternoon recovery). The results are expressed as the mean ± standard deviation. No statistically significant differences were observed.
