To examine the effects of repetitive bouts of heavy exercise on the maximal activities of enzymes representative of the major metabolic pathways and segments, 13 untrained volunteers [peak aerobic power (Vo(2 peak)) = 44.3 +/- 2.3 ml.kg(-1).min(-1)] cycled at approximately 91% Vo(2 peak) for 6 min once per hour for 16 h. Maximal enzyme activities (V(max), mol.kg(-1).protein.h(-1)) were measured in homogenates from tissue extracted from the vastus lateralis before and after exercise at… CONTINUE READING
