Nicole Gendreau Assignment #2 Kin 355 sec 3 September 26, 2011 Outline a. Topic Changes in VO2 max, cardiac structure, and function from the use of ergogenic aids during exercise. Focus on altitude training, anabolic steroids, and human growth hormone b. Title American Athletes Increase Adolescents Use of Steroids c. Introduction The purpose of this study is to support the use of natural dietary supplements to increase performance by exposing negative cardiovascular changes during the use of steroids and HGH, and their effects on strength and endurance. This research paper is going to determine the best way to increase performance with similar benefits of steroids without the negative effects It is an important topic because younger athletes are learning from their idols, and following their lead without the knowledge of the negative implications steroid and HGH use can cause.

The increase in competition has led these athletes to explore methods to give them an advantage in performance. The insufficient results from increased use of natural dietary supplements has led athletes to explore ergogenic aids that could increase performance dramatically. Anabolic steroids and human growth hormone are two ergogenic aids that have been proven to increase performance.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
