Metabolic consequences of repeated exercise in long distance runners


To assess the rates of change in muscle metabolites such as phosphocreatine (PCr) and inorganic phosphate (Pi) during repeated exercise sessions with rest periods, 31-phosphorus nuclear magnetic resonance spectroscopy was used for continuous and noninvasive measurements. Five long-distance runners and six healthy male subjects as controls performed a 2-min… (More)
