Whole muscle glycogen levels remain low for a prolonged period following a soccer match. The present study was conducted to investigate how this relates to glycogen content and particle size in distinct subcellular localizations. Seven high-level male soccer players had a vastus lateralis muscle biopsy collected immediately after and 24, 48, 72 and 120 h(More)
The present study examined if high intensity training (HIT) could increase the expression of oxidative enzymes in fast-twitch muscle fibers causing a faster oxygen uptake (V˙O2) response during intense (INT), but not moderate (MOD), exercise and reduce the V˙O2 slow component and muscle metabolic perturbation during INT. Pulmonary V˙O2 kinetics was(More)
To investigate the effects of combined strength and speed endurance (SE) training along with a reduced training volume on performance, running economy and muscular adaptations in endurance-trained runners. Sixteen male endurance runners (VO2-max: ~60 ml kg−1 min−1) were randomly assigned to either a combined strength and SE training (CSS; n = 9) or a(More)
Hemorrhagic hypotension in spontaneously hypertensive rats induces attenuation of somatosensory evoked potentials. In this model of relatively mild cerebral ischemia, our previous studies have shown that naloxone stereospecifically enhances the evoked potentials, without changes in cortical blood flow. The high dose of naloxone needed to enhance the evoked(More)
This study tested the hypothesis that elevated plasma adrenaline or metabolic stress enhances exercise-induced PGC-1α mRNA and intracellular signaling in human muscle. Trained (VO2-max: 53.8 ± 1.8 mL min(-1) kg(-1)) male subjects completed four different exercise protocols (work load of the legs was matched): C - cycling at 171 ± 6 W for 60 min (control); A(More)
