Glycogen availability can influence glucose transporter 4 (GLUT4) expression in skeletal muscle through unknown mechanisms. The multisubstrate enzyme AMP-activated protein kinase (AMPK) has also been shown to play an important role in the regulation of GLUT4 expression in skeletal muscle. During contraction, AMPK [alpha]2 translocates to the nucleus and the activity of this AMPK isoform is enhanced when skeletal muscle glycogen is low. In this study, we investigated if decreased pre-exercise muscle glycogen levels and increased AMPK [alpha]2 activity reduced the association of AMPK with glycogen and increased AMPK [alpha]2 translocation to the nucleus and GLUT4 mRNA expression following exercise. Seven males performed 60 min of exercise at ~70% [VO.sub.2] peak on 2 occasions: either with normal (control) or low (LG) carbohydrate pre-exercise muscle glycogen content. Muscle samples were obtained by needle biopsy before and after exercise. Low muscle glycogen was associated with elevated AMPK ...
Purpose: To evaluate the efficacy of using combined glucose and fructose (GF) ingestion as a means to stimulate short-term (4 h) postexercise muscle glycogen synthesis compared to glucose only (G). Methods: On two separate occasions, six endurance-trained men performed an exhaustive glycogen-depleting exercise bout followed by a 4-h recovery period. Muscle biopsy samples were obtained from the vastus lateralis muscle at 0, 1, and 4 h after exercise. Subjects ingested carbohydrate solutions containing G (90 gIhj1) or GF (G = 60 gIhj1; F = 30 gIhj1) commencing immediately after exercise and every 30 min thereafter. Results: Immediate postexercise muscle glycogen concentrations were similar in both trials (G = 128 T 25 mmolIkgj1 dry muscle (dm) vs GF = 112 T 16 mmolIkgj1 dm; P 9 0.05). Total glycogen storage during the 4-h recovery period was 176 T 33 and 155 T 31 mmolIkgj1 dm for G and GF, respectively (G vs GF, P 9 0.05). Hence, mean muscle glycogen synthesis rates during the 4-h recovery period ...
TY - JOUR. T1 - Influence of muscle glycogen availability on ERK1/2 and Akt signaling after resistance exercise in human skeletal muscle. AU - Creer, Andrew. AU - Gallagher, Philip. AU - Slivka, Dustin. AU - Jemiolo, Bozena. AU - Fink, William. AU - Trappe, Scott. PY - 2005/9. Y1 - 2005/9. N2 - Two pathways that have been implicated for cellular growth and development in response to muscle contraction are the extracellular signal-regulated kinase (ERK1/2) and Akt signaling pathways. Although these pathways are readily stimulated after exercise, little is known about how nutritional status may affect stimulation of these pathways in response to resistance exercise in human skeletal muscle. To investigate this, experienced cyclists performed 30 repetitions of knee extension exercise at 70% of one repetition maximum after a low (2%) or high (77%) carbohydrate (LCHO or HCHO) diet, which resulted in low or high (∼174 or ∼591 mmol/kg dry wt) preexercise muscle glycogen content. Muscle biopsies ...
TY - JOUR. T1 - Epinephrine regulation of skeletal muscle glycogen metabolism. Studies utilizing the perfused rat hindlimb preparation. AU - Dietz, M. R.. AU - Chiasson, J. L.. AU - Soderling, T. R.. AU - Exton, J. H.. PY - 1980/12/1. Y1 - 1980/12/1. N2 - Studies of rat skeletal muscle glycogen metabolism carried out in a perfused hindlimb system indicated that epinephrine activates phosphorylase via the cascade of phosphorylation reactions classically linked to the β-adrenergic receptor/adenylate cyclase system. The β blocker propranolol completely blocked the effects of epinephrine on cAMP, cAMP-dependent protein kinase, phosphorylase, and glucose-6-P, whereas the α blocker phentolamine was totally ineffective. Omission of glucose from the perfusion medium did not modify the effects of epinephrine. Glycogen synthase activity in control perfused and nonperfused muscle was largely glucose-6-P-dependent (-glucose-6-P/+glucose-6-P activity ratios of 0.1 and 0.2, respectively). Epinephrine ...
Glycogen plays a major role in supporting the energy demands of skeletal muscles during high intensity exercise. Despite its importance, the amount of glycogen stored in skeletal muscles is so small that a large fraction of it can be depleted in response to a single bout of high intensity exercise. For this reason, it is generally recommended to ingest food after exercise to replenish rapidly muscle glycogen stores, otherwise ones ability to engage in high intensity activity might be compromised. But what if food is not available? It is now well established that, even in the absence of food intake, skeletal muscles have the capacity to replenish some of their glycogen at the expense of endogenous carbon sources such as lactate. This is facilitated, in part, by the transient dephosphorylation-mediated activation of glycogen synthase and inhibition of glycogen phosphorylase. There is also evidence that muscle glycogen synthesis occurs even under conditions conducive to an increased oxidation of ...
In Saccharomyces cerevisiae, nutrient levels control multiple cellular processes. Cells lacking the SNF1 gene cannot express glucose-repressible genes and do not accumulate the storage polysaccharide glycogen. The impaired glycogen synthesis is due to maintenance of glycogen synthase in a hyperphosphorylated, inactive state. In a screen for second site suppressors of the glycogen storage defect of snf1 cells, we identified a mutant gene that restored glycogen accumulation and which was allelic with PHO85, which encodes a member of the cyclin-dependent kinase family. In cells with disrupted PHO85 genes, we observed hyperaccumulation of glycogen, activation of glycogen synthase, and impaired glycogen synthase kinase activity. In snf1 cells, glycogen synthase kinase activity was elevated. Partial purification of glycogen synthase kinase activity from yeast extracts resulted in the separation of two fractions by phenyl-Sepharose chromatography, both of which phosphorylated and inactivated glycogen ...
1. A description is given of the hour-to-hour variation in the liver glycogen content in adult male mice, and it is shown that the concentration is highest while the animals are asleep and lowest while they are awake.. 2. A similar cycle is also described in the glycogen content of the skin. Histologically it is shown that a high proportion of the skin glycogen lies in the cytoplasm of the epidermal cells, and that during sleep both the epidermal glycogen content and the epidermal mitotis rate increase considerably. The skin glycogen content and the epidermal mitotic activity also show a marked increase after a subcutaneous injection of 20 mg. starch, while they are both abnormally depressed after two injections of 1/50 unit insulin.. 3. These results, together with others previously reported, are in agreement with the theory that at the onset of sleep glucose is deposited from the blood into the tissues where it appears in the form of glycogen. Since it is known that glucose, or glycogen, is a ...
Glycogen synthase (UDP-glucose-glycogen glucosyltransferase) is a key enzyme in glycogenesis, the conversion of glucose into glycogen. It is a glycosyltransferase (EC 2.4.1.11) that catalyses the reaction of UDP-glucose and (1,4-α-D-glucosyl)n to yield UDP and (1,4-α-D-glucosyl)n+1. In other words, this enzyme combines excess glucose residues one by one into a polymeric chain for storage as glycogen. Glycogen synthase concentration is highest in the bloodstream 30 to 60 minutes following intense exercise. Much research has been done on glycogen degradation through studying the structure and function of glycogen phosphorylase, the key regulatory enzyme of glycogen degradation. On the other hand, much less is known about the structure of glycogen synthase, the key regulatory enzyme of glycogen synthesis. The crystal structure of glycogen synthase from Agrobacterium tumefaciens, however, has been determined at 2.3 A resolution. In its asymmetric form, glycogen synthase is found as a dimer, whose ...

Eccentric contractions induce muscle damage, which impairs recovery of glycogen and adenosine tri-phosphate (ATP) content over several days. Leucine-enriched essential amino acids (LEAAs) enhance the recovery in muscles that are damaged after eccentric contractions. However, the role of LEAAs in this process remains unclear. We evaluated the content in glycogen and high energy phosphates molecules (phosphocreatine (PCr), adenosine di-phosphate (ADP) and ATP) in rats that were following electrically stimulated eccentric contractions. Muscle glycogen content decreased immediately after the contraction and remained low for the first three days after the stimulation, but increased seven days after the eccentric contraction. LEAAs administration did not change muscle glycogen content during the first three days after the contraction. Interestingly, however, it induced a further increase in muscle glycogen seven days after the stimulation. Contrarily, ATP content decreased immediately after the eccentric
TY - JOUR. T1 - Analysis of respiratory mutants reveals new aspects of the control of glycogen accumulation by the cyclin-dependent protein kinase Pho85p. AU - Wilson, Wayne A.. AU - Wang, Zhong. AU - Roach, P. J.. PY - 2002/3/27. Y1 - 2002/3/27. N2 - The PHO85 gene of Saccharomyces cerevisiae encodes a cyclin-dependent protein kinase that can interact with 10 different cyclins (Pcls). In conjunction with Pcl8p and Pcl10p, Pho85p phosphorylates and regulates glycogen synthase. Respiratory-deficient strains, such as coq3 mutants, have reduced glycogen stores and contain hyperphosphorylated and inactive glycogen synthase. We show here that pho85 coq3 mutants have dephosphorylated and active glycogen synthase yet do not maintain glycogen reserves. In contrast, deletion of PCL8 and PCL10 in the coq3 mutant background partially restores glycogen accumulation. This suggested the existence of inputs from Pho85p into glycogen storage, independent of Pcl8p and Pcl10p, and acting antagonistically.. AB - ...

J.. AU - Shulman, R. G.. PY - 1988. Y1 - 1988.

The peak height of the C-1 resonance of the glucosyl subunits in glycogen was monitored, in real time, using 13C NMR techniques. During the initial 90 min the peak height of the C-1 resonance of glycogen increased at almost a constant rate reflecting a near linear increase in net glycogen synthesis, which persisted for a further 75 min if 13C-enriched substrates ...
The cDNA for mouse brain glycogen synthase has been isolated by screening a mouse cerebral cortical astrocyte lambda ZAP II cDNA library. The mouse brain glycogen synthase cDNA is 3.5 kilobases in length and encodes a protein of 737 amino acids. The coding sequence of mouse brain glycogen synthase cDNA shares approximately 87% nucleotide identity and approximately 96% amino acid identity with the muscle isozyme, while the degree of identity is lower with the liver isozyme. The regional distribution of glycogen synthase mRNA determined by in situ hybridization in the mouse brain reveals a wide distribution throughout the central nervous system with highest densities observed in the cerebellum, hippocampus and olfactory bulb. At the cellular level the expression of brain glycogen synthase mRNA is localized both in astrocytes and neurons with, however, the higher levels observed in astrocytes. Vasoactive intestinal peptide and noradrenaline, two neurotransmitters previously shown to induce a glycogen
Background: Diabetic cardiomyopathy is a distinct cardiac pathology and the underlying mechanisms are unknown. Elevated glycogen content has been observed in the diabetic human myocardium, first recorded 80 years ago, suggesting that despite impaired glucose uptake cardiomyocytes accumulate glycogen. Anecdotal evidence of glycogen accumulation in the diabetic myocardium has since been recorded in the literature but a systematic investigation of this paradoxical phenomenon has not been conducted. Glycogen storage diseases demonstrate that increased cardiac glycogen is associated with severe functional deficits, and therefore the observed glycogen excess in diabetic hearts may be an important and novel agent of pathology in diabetic cardiomyopathy. Aim: This body of work aimed to systematically investigate the role myocardial glycogen accumulation in diabetic cardiomyopathy, with a focus on glycophagy, a glycogen-specific autophagy process. Key metabolic signaling pathways (insulin, AMPK, ...
It is generally acknowledged that fasted animals recovering from physical activity of near-maximal intensity can replenish their muscle glycogen stores even in the absence of food intake. In some mammal species, such as in rats and humans, the extent of this replenishment is only partial (Hermansen and Vaage, 1977; Astrand et al., 1986; Choi et al., 1994; Nikolovski et al., 1996; Peters et al., 1996; Bangsbo et al., 1997; Ferreira et al., 2001; Fournier et al., 2002), thus suggesting that a few consecutive bouts of high-intensity exercise might eventually lead to the progressive depletion of their muscle glycogen stores. In order to test this prediction, groups of rats were subjected to a series of three bouts of high-intensity swims to exhaustion, each separated from the subsequent one by a recovery period previously shown to be long enough for muscle glycogen and lactate to return to stable levels (Ferreira et al., 2001). This study shows for the first time that repeated bouts of ...
Since its identification more than 150 years ago, there has been an extensive characterisation of glycogen metabolism and its regulatory pathways in the two main glycogen storage organs of the body, i.e. liver and muscle. In recent years, glycogen metabolism has also been demonstrated to be upregulated in many tumour types, suggesting it is an important aspect of cancer cell pathophysiology. Here, we provide an overview of glycogen metabolism and its regulation, with a focus on its role in metabolic reprogramming of cancer cells. The various methods to detect glycogen in tumours in vivo are also reviewed. Finally, we discuss the targeting of glycogen metabolism as a strategy for cancer treatment.
In obesity, insulin-stimulated glucose uptake in skeletal muscle is decreased. We investigated whether the stimulatory effect of acute exercise on glucose uptake and subsequent glycogen synthesis was normal. The study was performed on 18 healthy volu
Hepatic glycogen synthesis is impaired in insulin-dependent diabetic rats and in adrenalectomized starved rats, and although this is known to be due to defective activation of glycogen synthase by glycogen synthase phosphatase, the underlying molecular mechanism has not been delineated. Glycogen synthase phosphatase comprises the catalytic subunit of protein phosphatase 1 (PP1) complexed with the hepatic glycogen-binding subunit, termed GL. In liver extracts of insulin-dependent diabetic and adrenalectomized starved rats, the level of GL was shown by immunoblotting to be substantially reduced compared with that in control extracts, whereas the level of PP1 catalytic subunit was not affected by these treatments. Insulin administration to diabetic rats restored the level of GL and prolonged administration raised it above the control levels, whereas re-feeding partially restored the GL level in adrenalectomized starved rats. The regulation of GL protein levels by insulin and starvation/feeding was ...
Title: Glycogen and its Metabolism. VOLUME: 2 ISSUE: 2. Author(s):Peter J. Roach. Affiliation:MS405A, Medical ScienceBuilding, 635 Barnhill Drive, Indianapolis, IN 46202, USA. Keywords:glycogen, phosphorylayion, catecholamines, glycogenolysis, glycogenin, glycogen synthesis, glycogen synthase, glycogen phosphorylase, acid glucosidase. Abstract: Glycogen is a branched polymer of glucose which serves as a reservoir of glucose units. The two largest deposits in mammals are in the liver and skeletal muscle but many cells are capable synthesizing glycogen. Its accumulation and utilization are under elaborate controls involving primarily covalent phosphorylation and allosteric ligand binding. Both muscle and liver glycogen reserves are important for whole body glucose metabolism and their replenishment is linked hormonally to nutritional status. Control differs between muscle and liver in part due to the existence of different tissue-specific isoforms at key steps. Control of synthesis is shared ...
Muscle glycogen provides a readily available source of glucose-1-phosphate for glycolysis within the muscle itself. Liver glycogen functions as a reserve to maintain the blood glucose concentration in the fasting state. The liver concentration of glycogen is about 450 mmol /L glucose equivalents after a meal, falling to about 200 mmol /L after an overnight fast; after 12 to 18 hours of fasting, liver glycogen is almost totally depleted. Although muscle glycogen does not directly yield free glucose (because muscle lacks glucose-6-phosphatase), pyruvate formed by glycolysis in muscle can undergo transamination to alanine, which is exported from muscle and used for gluconeogenesis in the liver (see Figure 19-4). Glycogen storage diseases are a group of inherited disorders characterized by deficient mobilization of glycogen or deposition of abnormal forms of glycogen, leading to liver damage and muscle weakness; some glycogen storage diseases result in early death. ...

PY - 1974/1/1. Y1 - 1974/1/1. N2 - The mechanism of release of luteinizing hormone (LH) and follicle stimulating hormone (FSH) from the rat anterior pituitary by LH releasing hormone (LH RH) was further evaluated by studies on pituitary glycogen metabolism and its relation to the hormone release mechanism in vitro. Pituitary glycogen content and the activity levels of its 2 major regulatory enzymes, glycogen synthetase and glycogen phosphorylase, were analyzed after exposure to different doses of synthetic LH RH in vitro. Less than 5 ng of LH RH induced within minutes a maximum glycogenolytic response with an increase in the proportion of pituitary phosphorylase in the more active a form and a decrease in pituitary glycogen.

Transcription of metabolic genes is transiently induced during recovery from exercise in skeletal muscle of humans. To determine whether pre-exercise muscle glycogen content influences the magnitude and/or duration of this adaptive response, six male subjects performed one-legged cycling exercise to lower muscle glycogen content in one leg and then, the following day, completed 2.5 h low intensity two-legged cycling exercise. Nuclei and mRNA were isolated from biopsies obtained from the vastus lateralis muscle of the control and reduced glycogen (pre-exercise glycogen = 609 ± 47 and 337 ± 33 mmol kg-1 dry weight, respectively) legs before and after 0, 2 and 5 h of recovery. Exercise induced a significant (P <> 6-fold) than in the control (< 3-fold) trial. Induction of PDK4 and UCP3 mRNA in response to exercise was also signficantly higher in the low glycogen (11.4- and 3.5-fold, respectively) than in the control (5.0- and 1.7-fold, respectively) trial. These data indicate that low muscle ...
Recovery is governed by the length of time taken to fully restore muscle glycogen. Muscle glycogen is depleted after 2-3 hours of continuous exercise at 60-80% VO2max. Glycogen depletion can also occur after 15-20 min of very intense exercise at 90-130% VO2max. Low muscle glycogen levels increase the risk of injury. Restoration of muscle glycogen can take 20 hours with correct diet and supplementation. Less than an optimal diet will increase recovery time. CHO replenishment during exercise seems to be optimal at 7-8% concentration in water. However, after exercise it can be of a much higher concnetration. Implication. For intermittent high intensity sports (e.g., soccer, hockey) the ingestion of CHO throughout the game, and during any rest period will result in muscle glycogen being restored and increased sprinting ability towards the end of the game. This will not happen when only water is consumed. Return to Table of Contents for this issue. ...

Your diet can have a major impact on your bodys ability to produce glycogen. This is especially the case if youre on a low-carb diet where youre reducing the number of carbohydrates youre consuming with each meal.. It should be noted that low-carb diets come with their own side effects, primarily because your bodys glycogen stores may not have the fuel needed to replenish properly, resulting in symptoms of mental dullness and fatigue. Over time, your body should adjust to these changes, and your glycogen stores should replenish, bringing your energy levels back up to normal.. In the same manner, you may experience a decrease in glycogen stores if you lose any amount of weight. As many people who have been on a diet may have experienced, weight loss may occur initially, but may eventually plateau and even begin increasing after a certain point.. This process occurs partially because glycogen is primarily made up of water, making up three to four times the weight of the molecule itself. ...
It is also significant that conditions 1 & 2 above caused greater glycogen to be utilized during the test run (21k) than the 3rd condition. BUT, the authors said there was no difference in the run times between groups, and the post-exercise glycogen levels between groups were similar. What does this mean? "Carbo loading" may increase glycogen stores, which translates to greater glycogen utilization during the run. However, this doesnt benefit performance. What is most interesting to me is that the low-CHO diet for the first 3 days had virtually no benefit over a moderate-CHO diet (in terms of glycogen storage). This could be the study that Rich was referring to when he talked about the "myth" of carbo-loading. It has been generally accepted that the "depletion" phase of 1970s-sytle carboloading is of no greater benefit than eating a moderately high CHO diet and pushing additional carbs in the 72 hours preceding depleting exercise. SO, then, Chucks assertion that "restricting carbs 7-4 days ...

Re muscles. When exercising - and this is important - muscles cells will also take up glucose, even in the (relative - cos you always have at least some in your circulation )absence of insulin. Exercise ( via AMPK ? ) stimulates a secondary pool of GLUT4 which then go get glucose. Perhaps most importantly, this can last for betwen 24 to 36hours, and is in part why exercise is recommended for diabetics etc and also why they tell you not to let much more than a day to pass between exercising. Re HIIT. As well as promoting the above, it also very rapidly empties muscle glycogen stores. In intensive exercise, the cells cannot get sufficient fuel quickly enough from the circulation, so the muscle glycogen stores get used up rapidly and HIIT is one of the best ways of doing this. So when youve finished exercising, the muscle cells will immediately replenish this. All of which, in addition to the above, helps keep your blood glucose levels down ...

Glycogenin-1 is an enzyme that is involved in the biosynthesis of glycogen. This enzyme is important for the function of self-glucosylated to form an oligosaccharide primer that serves as substrate for glycogen synthase. This is done through an inter-subunit mechanism. It also plays a role in glycogen metabolism regulation and in the maximal glycogen levels attaintment in skeletal muscle. Recombinant human glycogenin-1 was expressed in E. coli and purified by using conventional chromatography techniques. Glycogen is a multi branched polysaccharide. It is the way all the animal cells have to store glucose. In the human body, the two main tissues of glycogen accumulation are liver and skeletal muscle. The concentration of this polysaccharide is superior at the liver, but, due to the major mass of skeletal that muscle humans have, this tissue contains three quarters of the corporal glycogen. On the one hand, the function of the liver glycogen is to maintain glucose homeostasis as a way to ...
A note on carbohydrate (carbo) loading: Carbo-loading is a method some athletes use to maximize glycogen stores. The original method began 1 week prior to the event. For the first 3 days, athletes ate a very low carbohydrate diet (about 10% of total calories) and exercised intensely to deplete glycogen stores. The following 3 days the athlete ate a very high carbohydrate diet (about 90% of total calories) and reduced exercise intensity to maximize glycogen stores. Over the years this technique has been modified and the depletion phase has basically been eliminated. Now athletes usually just increase carbohydrate intake for the 3 days prior to the event (about 70% of calories) and decrease exercise intensity. Consult a physician before attempting a carbo-loading diet.. Protein. Protein is needed for muscle and tissue growth and repair. However, too much protein can cause dehydration and muscle heaviness. When muscle glycogen stores are high, protein contributes less than 5% of the energy needed ...
Constitutively active protein kinase that acts as a negative regulator in the hormonal control of glucose homeostasis, Wnt signaling and regulation of transcription factors and microtubules, by phosphorylating and inactivating glycogen synthase (GYS1 or GYS2), CTNNB1/beta-catenin, APC and AXIN1. Requires primed phosphorylation of the majority of its substrates. Contributes to insulin regulation of glycogen synthesis by phosphorylating and inhibiting GYS1 activity and hence glycogen synthesis. Regulates glycogen metabolism in liver, but not in muscle. May also mediate the development of insulin resistance by regulating activation of transcription factors. In Wnt signaling, regulates the level and transcriptional activity of nuclear CTNNB1/beta-catenin. Facilitates amyloid precursor protein (APP) processing and the generation of APP-derived amyloid plaques found in Alzheimer disease. May be involved in the regulation of replication in pancreatic beta-cells. Is necessary for the establishment of neuronal

Using mice that overexpress PTG specifically in the liver, we examined the impact of liver glycogen on food intake. The overexpression of this protein caused an increase in hepatic glycogen stores in mice. When fed an HFD, these animals decreased their food intake and had a lower body weight and decreased fat mass. Changes in key regulators of food intake in the hypothalamus support the decrease in appetite observed in these animals. Expression of POMC, an anorexigenic signal, increased, whereas that of orexigenic NPY decreased. These data support the idea that liver glycogen stores regulate food intake, thus reinforcing the glycogenostatic theory (12). However, in the present study, this effect was limited to hyperphagic conditions, such as HFD. Friedman (34) proposed that changes in glycogen stores do not necessarily signal changes in food intake; rather, the partitioning of carbohydrates in and out of glycogen affects eating behavior by altering fuel fluxes, and, by analogy to fat fuels, ...
What does it do for your muscles and burning fat?. Understanding the relationship between carbohydrates and glycogen can help you respond better to the demands of your body. Sometimes the more active we become and cleaner with our nutrition your glycogen levels can find themselves in a deficit. When your glycogen is low and needs to be replenished we can appear leaner and tighter. However, mentally we may feel foggy and tired. Have you ever notice after eating unclean food, had an all out binge and woke up the next day feeling just as tight, you swear maybe even tighter? You think your eyes are playing tricks on you. This may actually be the case! That is likely because your glycogen levels were low and eating that rich food restored them, letting the body let go of retained water and provided the illusion of swelled muscles to gain that look of tightness. You may even have heard of some fitness athletes before a shoot will plan a couple glasses of wine and a sweet treat the night before. This ...

The aim of these experiments was to investigate the interrelationships of fat and carbohydrate (CHO) metabolism in mammalian muscle. In particular, it was hoped to clarify the mechanisms regulating the integration of the supply and utilisation of metabolic substrates in skeletal muscle. This was achieved by studying the response to a perturbation of normal metabolic processes. Administration of a low CHO diet following exereise-induced glycogen depletion resulted in a situation where the muscle and liver glycogen stores were lower than normal, and the availability of plasma FFA was greater than normal. Administration of a high CHO diet immediately following the low CHO diet resulted in the achievement of greater than normal glycogen stores and a restricted availability of FFA. Subjects were studied at rest and during exercise of different intensities at each stage of this dietary regime Measurements were made of blood metabolites and cardiovascular and respiratory parameters. Following the low ...

VITARGO! contains Vitargo®, a patented, high molecular weight carbohydrate with an average molecular weight of 500,000-700,000. Its unique, because its specially processed to yield a molecular profile that is massively different from the sugars (e.g. Glucose, Fructose) and Maltodextrin found in many products. The molecular weight of Maltodextrin is around 1,000-10,000 and Dextrose is approximately 180!. It has generally been accepted by science that prolonged submaximal exercise is limited by the availability of muscle and liver glycogen stores and that these stores increase when carbohydrate intake is high. It has also been shown that the rate of glycogen (stored carbohydrate in the body) synthesis is highest in muscles in which the glycogen stores have been depleted by exercise. The rate of glycogen synthesis following exercise is of importance for athletes during training sessions with repeated periods of heavy or submaximal exercise, as well as during competition especially when several ...

What it is: A temporary tattoo-like sensor that monitors lactate levels. What it promises: To let you know when youre running low on glycogen so you can avoid bonking or "hitting a wall" during a workout.. How it works: As NewScientist explains, muscles fuel turn glycogen into energy during intense workouts, creating lactic acid in the process. The sensor measures lactate levels, and in the future, may pair with a smartphone for real-time lactate readings.. Cost: The sensor is still in development.. Caveat: As far as preventing overtraining, the sensor may not be incredibly helpful. Though low muscle glycogen is associated with poor performance and exercise-induced fatigue, researchers are unconvinced that it can cause overtraining syndrome. However, the sensor can help athletes fuel more efficiently during a tough workout, and decide when to back off.. ...
Although all the hard work is done, keep your focus. Adequate fuelling the week before the race is vital, as poorly fuelled muscles cause needless fatigue. The aim of pre-race nutrition is to optimise fuel stores (muscle glycogen) and hydration status. Reducing training load (tapering) while consuming a high carbohydrate intake (5-8g/kg.bw per day) for 2-3 days before the race will ensure muscle glycogen levels will be replenished ready for racing. This increase in carb intake though should not be a result of eating more but by reducing fat intake and focusing on carbohydrate rich foods in meals and snacks. Using sports drinks are a good way of increasing carb intake without making you feel too full. Be prepared though, putting on some weight in this phase is common. Every gram of glycogen stored, holds 3 grams of water, however, dont be too concerned, this stored fuel will help power you through your race..

Never work out on an empty stomach. This is the single most important thing you need to remember. It does not matter if you workout at 5 a.m. and that your goal is fat loss, working out on an empty stomach will hinder not hasten your results. What you should eat beforehand varies depending on who you talk to. Traditional dogma suggests stocking up on some extra carbohydrates (50 grams is a typical recommendation) to maximize muscle glycogen storage. This may work for some and it may certainly prove important during longer duration WODs but protein (15-20 grams is a standard recommendation) can be just as effective. Protein can play two roles pre-WOD. First, it provides essential amino acids to working skeletal muscle that can prevent catabolism during your workout while also accelerating your recovery. Protein will also be converted to muscle glycogen when and where needed through a process called gluconeogenesis. It then becomes a trained adaptation on the part of the individual to determine ...
Blood lactate is a normal and important component of our body chemistry. Its metabolism includes simultaneous muscle uptake and release at rest during all intensities of exercise. Specifically, lactate provides an important source of energy, in the form of glucose, that helps replace muscle glycogen stores when they are diminished; it s an important fuel for aerobic metabolism (to help maintain fat-burning); and helps spare blood glucose. These actions occur during all exercise to varying degrees, especially during hard training and competition. Lactate is also utilized as an energy source for many other tissues throughout the body. Its used by cardiac muscle, the liver and kidney, red and white blood cells, and the brain. Lactate is also important for wound repair and regeneration. The largest mass of tissue, skeletal muscle, uses considerable amounts of lactate. Muscle. The old view that lactate, beginning with the muscles production of lactic acid during hard exercise (oxygen debt), is a ...
