Progressive effect of endurance training on metabolic adaptations in working skeletal muscle.

We investigated the hypothesis that a program of prolonged endurance training, previously shown to decrease metabolic perturbations to acute exercise within 5 days of training, would result in greater metabolic adaptations after a longer training duration. Seven healthy male volunteers [O2 consumption = 3.52 +/- 0.20 (SE) l/min] engaged in a training… (More)
