REASONS FOR PERFORMING STUDY No studies in horses have examined the effect of route of carbohydrate (glucose) administration on the rate of muscle glycogen storage following glycogen-depleting exercise. HYPOTHESIS Glucose delivery from the gastrointestinal tract limits the rate of muscle glycogen storage following glycogen-depleting exercise. METHODS In(More)
REASONS FOR PERFORMING STUDY There is limited information about factors regulating glucose utilisation post exercise in horses. OBJECTIVES To determine the effects of a single bout of moderate intensity exercise on measures of insulin-mediated (IMGU) and noninsulin-mediated (NIMGU) glucose uptake during a hyperglycaemic clamp (HC). METHODS(More)
REASONS FOR PERFORMING STUDY Increased insulin sensitivity occurs after a period of exercise training, but the mechanisms underlying this training-associated increase in insulin action have not been investigated. OBJECTIVE To examine the effects of short-term endurance training (7 consecutive days) and a subsequent period of inactivity (5 days) on whole(More)
REASONS FOR PERFORMING STUDY Starch rich (S) feeds reduce insulin sensitivity in untrained horses when compared to high fat (F) feeds, but insulin sensitivity is not affected when S or F are fed during exercise training. The effects of S vs. F on training-associated alterations in skeletal muscle glucose metabolism are unknown. OBJECTIVES To determine the(More)
