Eleven male subjects were studied during graded leg exercise from 60 to 270 W. Arterial and venous lactate concentrations were measured from the resting forearm during the exercise and recovery periods. Lactate concentration rose regularly during the work and declined slowly to basal levels after the exercise. The arteriovenous difference rapidly became positive during the exercise, indicating a net uptake of lactate by the nonexercising muscles. The uptake of lactate by the muscle correlated… CONTINUE READING
