Several studies using different techniques to estimate muscle blood flow during exercise in humans support the concept that peak muscle perfusion is at least 150 ml/100 g/min. Such high blood flows are achieved when only part of the muscle mass is recruited during exercise. With 2 or more limbs exercising, the pump capacity of the heart will limit the blood flow available for the muscles. Norepinephrine spillover from an exercising limb is increased when a small muscle group performs the work… CONTINUE READING
