To examine the effects of 24-h controlled carbohydrate intake on next day pre- and post-exercise inflammatory and hepcidin responses. In a crossover design, 12 well-trained endurance athletes (Ht 181.08 ± 7.68 cm; Wt 74.8 ± 11.5 kg, VO2peak 68.9 ± 7.2 ml kg−1 min−1) completed two experimental (2-day) trials. On day 1, participants completed a glycogen depletion task, including a 16-km run (80 % vVO2peak) and 5 × 1 min efforts (130 % vVO2peak) separated by 2-min recovery. Subsequently, strict… CONTINUE READING
