As in vivo 31P-Nuclear Magnetic Resonance spectroscopy is currently the state of the art method to measure continuously intracellular pH (pH(i)) and energy status of muscle tissue, we used this method to study the recovery from exhaustive exercise. The biochemical changes during recovery are not well understood and it was suggested that post-exercise mortality could be caused by low pH(i); other studies however indicate that energy depletion might be more important. To analyse the mechanism of… CONTINUE READING
