Hormonal and metabolic responses to electrically induced dynamic exercise were investigated in eight healthy young men with afferent neural influence from the legs blocked by epidural anesthesia (25 ml of 2% lidocaine) at L3-L4. This caused cutaneous sensory anesthesia below T8-T9 and complete paralysis of the legs. Cycling increased oxygen uptake to 1.90 +/- 0.13 (SE) l/min, and fatigue developed after 22.7 +/- 2.7 min. Compared with voluntary exercise at the same oxygen uptake and heart rate… CONTINUE READING
