We determined the effects of a cycle training program in which selected sessions were performed with low muscle glycogen content on training capacity and subsequent endurance performance, whole body substrate oxidation during submaximal exercise, and several mitochondrial enzymes and signaling proteins with putative roles in promoting training adaptation.

Figures and Tables from this paper

Training with low muscle glycogen enhances fat metabolism in well-trained cyclists.

Training with low muscle glycogen reduced training intensity and, in performance, was no more effective than training with high muscle glycogens, however, fat oxidation was increased after training with low Muscle glycogen, which may have been due to the enhanced metabolic adaptations in skeletal muscle.

Acute signalling responses to intense endurance training commenced with low or normal muscle glycogen

It is concluded that despite a greater activation AMPK phosphorylation when HIT was commenced with low compared with normal muscle glycogen availability, the localization andosphorylation state of selected downstream targets of AMPK were similar in response to the two interventions.

Daily training with high carbohydrate availability increases exogenous carbohydrate oxidation during endurance cycling.

Changing total daily carbohydrate intake by providing or withholding carbohydrate during daily training in trained athletes results in differences in selected metabolic adaptations to exercise, including the oxidation of exogenous carbohydrate, but these metabolic changes do not alter the training-induced magnitude of increase in exercise performance.

No Superior Adaptations to Carbohydrate Periodization in Elite Endurance Athletes

Superimposing periodic CHO restriction to 4 wk of regular endurance training had no superior effects on performance and muscle adaptations in elite endurance athletes.

Concurrent speed endurance and resistance training improves performance, running economy, and muscle NHE1 in moderately trained runners.

It is demonstrated that SET and HRT, when performed in succession, lead to improvements in both short- and long-term running performance together with improved running economy as well as increased dynamic muscle strength and capacity for muscular H(+) transport in moderately trained endurance runners.

Beneficial metabolic adaptations due to endurance exercise training in the fasted state.

F is more effective than CHO to increase muscular oxidative capacity and at the same time enhances exercise-induced net IMCL degradation and prevented drop of blood glucose concentration during fasting exercise.

Training in the fasted state facilitates re-activation of eEF2 activity during recovery from endurance exercise

Training in the fasted state, compared with identical training with ample carbohydrate intake, facilitates post-exercise dephosphorylation of eEF2, which may contribute to rapid re-activation of muscle protein translation following endurance exercise.

The influence of continuous vs split training protocols on endurance performance

The findings in this research demonstrate that, rather than previous suggestions that performance typically declines, during the foundational stage of training where an increase in volume is achieved, conducting either of the once or twice daily training plans developed in Study 3 for six weeks resulted in improvements in 5 km RP.

Carbohydrate feeding during recovery alters the skeletal muscle metabolic response to repeated sessions of high-intensity interval exercise in humans.

Evidence is provided that p38 MAPK is a nutrient-sensitive signaling molecule that could be involved in the altered skeletal muscle adaptive response reported after exercise training under conditions of restricted CHO intake, but further research is required to confirm this hypothesis.

Effects of protein intake prior to carbohydrate-restricted endurance exercise: a randomized crossover trial

It is concluded that protein ingestion prior to endurance exercise in the energy- and carbohydrate-restricted state does not increase myofibrillar protein synthesis or improve net protein balance in the exercising and non-exercising muscles, respectively, during and in the hours after exercise compared to ingestion of a non-caloric control.



Skeletal muscle adaptation: training twice every second day vs. training once daily.

In conclusion, the present study suggests that training twice every second day may be superior to daily training.

Skeletal muscle buffering capacity and endurance performance after high-intensity interval training by well-trained cyclists

The results indicate that βm may be an important determinant of relatively short-duration (< 60 min) endurance cycling activity and responds positively to just six sessions of high-intensity, submaximal interval training.

Similar metabolic adaptations during exercise after low volume sprint interval and traditional endurance training in humans

Given the markedly lower training volume in the SIT group, these data suggest that high‐intensity interval training is a time‐efficient strategy to increase skeletal muscle oxidative capacity and induce specific metabolic adaptations during exercise that are comparable to traditional ET.

Metabolic demands of intense aerobic interval training in competitive cyclists.

High trained cyclists are able to sustain high steady state aerobic power outputs that are associated with high rates of glycogenolysis and total energy expenditure similar to those experienced during a 60-min competitive ride.

Improved athletic performance in highly trained cyclists after interval training.

Results indicate that a 4-wk program of HIT increased the PPO and fatigue resistance of competitive cyclists and improved their 40-km time trial performances.

Metabolic and performance adaptations to interval training in endurance-trained cyclists

The ability of the cyclists to sustain higher percentages of peak power output in TT40 performances after HIT was not due to lower rates of CHO oxidation, and higher relative work rates in the TT40 rides following HIT increased the estimated rates ofCHO oxidation.

Decreased PDH activation and glycogenolysis during exercise following fat adaptation with carbohydrate restoration.

Results indicate that previously reported decreases in whole body CHO oxidation and increases in fat oxidation after the FAT-adapt protocol are a function of metabolic changes within skeletal muscle.

Intensified exercise training does not alter AMPK signaling in human skeletal muscle.

It is indicated that, in well-trained individuals, short-term HIT improves metabolic control but does not blunt AMPK signaling in response to intense exercise.

Muscle glycogen utilization during prolonged strenuous exercise when fed carbohydrate.

It is concluded that when they are fed carbohydrate, highly trained endurance athletes are capable of oxidizing carbohydrate at relatively high rates from sources other than muscle glycogen during the latter stages of prolonged strenuous exercise and that this postpones fatigue.

Fat adaptation followed by carbohydrate loading compromises high-intensity sprint performance.

The HFD-CHO dietary strategy increased fat oxidation, but compromised high intensity sprint performance, possibly by increased sympathetic activation or altered contractile function.
