Muscle glycogen super-compensation, as demonstrated after exhaustive cycling, may be affected by mode of exercise and state of training. Hence, we studied the effect of exhaustive running on post-exercise changes in muscle glycogen concentration in untrained subjects and compared the effect of tapered running with an exhaustive bout of running in well-trained runners. Six trained runners (T), 6 untrained subjects (UT), and 6 physically active subjects participated. Four hundred grams of… CONTINUE READING
