Preexercise medium-chain triglyceride ingestion does not alter muscle glycogen use during exercise.

This investigation determined whether ingestion of a tolerable amount of medium-chain triglycerides (MCT; approximately 25 g) reduces the rate of muscle glycogen use during high-intensity exercise. On two occasions, seven well-trained men cycled for 30 min at 84% maximal O(2) uptake. Exactly 1 h before exercise, they ingested either 1) carbohydrate (CHO; 0… CONTINUE READING
