Rapid depletion of muscle glycogen occurs during activities greater than 100% of maximal oxygen uptake. While carbohydrate ingestion prior to an endurance event has been shown to be beneficial, the effects of carbohyrate ingestion on repeated bouts of high-intensity exercise are not known. Therefore, the purpose of this study was to determine if carbohydrate ingestion prior to repeated bouts of high-intensity, short-duration exercise would improve performance. Ten well-trained male cyclists… CONTINUE READING
