Abstract : The pollutants commonly experienced in cities of the United States are: carbon monoxide, ozone, peroxyacetyl nitrate, aerosols, sulfur dioxide, and nitrogen dioxide. Only carbon monoxide has been show to reduce exercise performance. The investigations which evaluated the impact of other pollutants on performance, may not have been sensitive enough to detect the small performance decrements caused. Suggested ways to avoid performance decrements are included. Keywords: Strength, Performance.
