  MSE10 MSE30
A (mmol l-1) 9.1 ± 2.1 15.3 ± 2.1*
K1 (min-1) 0.610 ± 0.119 0.505 ± 0.107*

TBLCmax (min) 4.8 ± 0.6 6.6 ± 1.0*#
  1. A: intra-muscular increase of lactate; k1: constant of invasion into the blood compartment; k2: constant of evasion out of the blood compartment; BLCmax: highest BLC above the pre-test BLC; TBLCmax: time of BLCmax; *: significantly different to MSE10; #: significantly different to 4 parameter model
