The purpose of this study was to determine epinephrine (EPI) and selected substrate responses during arm crank (AC) and leg cycle (LC) exercise at the same absolute and relative exercise intensity. Nine males performed 30 min AC and LC tests at 70% of ergometer-specific peak oxygen uptake (VO2), and a 30 min LC test eliciting a similar VO2 required during the AC test. Blood samples (30 ml) were collected via an indwelling arm catheter at rest, and at minutes 13 and 28 of exercise for… CONTINUE READING
