This thesis examined the effects of pre-exercise circumstances on self-paced intermittent-sprint performance in team sport athletes. The thesis highlighted that both physiological and perceptual changes associated with sleep deprivation, carbohydrate ingestion, and thermoregulatory stress affect pacing strategies of specific exercise modes. The delivery of such circumstances indicates that altered pacing strategies were due to both peripheral and central mechanisms; with the contribution dependent upon the exercise mode and prior knowledge about the physical state.
