In an effort to assess the effects of environmental heat stress on muscle metabolism during exercise, 6 men performed work in the heat (T db = 41° C, RH = 15%) and cold (T db = 9° C, RH = 55%). Exercise consisted of three 15-min cycling bouts at 70 to 85% $$\dot V_{O_2 \max } $$ , with 10-min rest between each. Muscle biopsies obtained from the vastus lateralis before and after each work bout were analyzed for glycogen and triglyceride content. Venous blood samples drawn before and after… CONTINUE READING
