Differences in core temperature and body heat content, generally observed between the luteal and follicular phase of the menstrual cycle, have been reported to modulate the thermogenic activity of cold-exposed women. However, it is unclear how this change in whole body shivering activity will influence fuel selection. The goal of this study was to quantify the effects of the menstrual cycle on muscle recruitment and oxidative fuel selection during low-intensity shivering. Electromyographic… CONTINUE READING
