Values are mean ± standard deviation, median and range; differences were detected using the Memenyi-Damico-Wolfe-Dunn Test § Parameter significantly affected by the exercise test (i.e. pre or post exercise test, P<0.05); ¶ parameter significantly different between skill groups, P<0.05. Pre = pre-exercise, Post = post-exercise, 4 hr post = 4 hours following exercise, RBC= red blood cell count, HCT= hematocrit, Hgb= hemoglobin, WBC= white blood cell count, μL= microliter, g/dL= grams per deciliter.
