Carbohydrate Availability and Training Adaptation: Effects on Cell Metabolism

Hawley, John A.1; Burke, Louise M.2

Collapse Box


Several markers of endurance training adaptation are enhanced to a greater extent when individuals undertake selected training sessions with low compared with normal muscle glycogen content or with low exogenous carbohydrate availability. The potential mechanisms underlying the cellular responses arising from such nutrient-exercise interactions are discussed in the context of promoting training adaptation.
