Skeletal muscle releases potassium during activity. Interstitial potassium accumulation is important for muscle function and the development of fatigue resulting from exercise. In the present study we used sodium citrate ingestion as a tool to investigate the relationship between interstitial H+ concentration and K+ accumulation during exercise. Seven healthy subjects performed one-legged knee-extensor exercise on two separate days with and without sodium citrate ingestion. Interstitial H+ and… CONTINUE READING
