This study evaluated the effectiveness of pre-exercise glycerol feeding in protecting against development of hypoglycemia and sparing muscle glycogen during prolonged, intense exercise. Thirty minutes after ingesting either glycerol (1 gm X kg-1 body weight) or a placebo, 10 cyclists performed as much exercise on a cycle ergometer as they were able in 150 min. The average exercise intensity was 72% of VO2max during both trials. Glycerol ingestion increased blood glycerol concentration 100-fold… CONTINUE READING
