BACKGROUND Irisin, a recently discovered myokine, has been shown to induce browning of white adipose tissue, enhancing energy expenditure and mediating some of the beneficial effects of exercise. We aimed to estimate the time frame of changes in irisin levels after acute exercise and the effect of different exercise workloads and intensities on circulating irisin levels immediately post-exercise. METHODS In a pilot study, four healthy subjects (22.5±1.7 years) underwent maximal workload… CONTINUE READING
