Glycogen depletion-induced lactate reductions attenuate reflex responses in exercising humans.

Post leg exercise circulatory arrest (PLE-CA) raises blood pressure (BP) and reduces peak forearm vascular conductance (C). This reflex is evoked by activation of muscle afferents that are often sensitive to lactic acid. We tested the hypothesis that lactic acid reductions induced by muscle glycogen depletion would attenuate the lower-limb metaboreceptor… CONTINUE READING
