A 3-day dietary manipulation affects muscle glycogen and results in modifications of carbohydrate and fat metabolism during exercise when hyperglycaemic

The carbohydrate (CHO) loading diet was popularised in the late 1960s after it had been found that muscle glycogen content could be increased by a high-CHO diet (~ 70% CHO) which led to an improvement in sporting performance (Ahlborg et al. 1967 ; …

Neuromuscular and perceptual responses during repeated cycling sprints—usefulness of a “hypoxic to normoxic” recovery approach

A consequence of repetitive “all-out” efforts is the development of fatigue defined as an exercise-induced reduction in the maximal isometric voluntary contraction (MVC) force/torque or power of a muscle group, which potentially involves …

Über diese Zeitschrift

With a focus on human integrative and translational physiology, the European Journal of Applied Physiology publishes original research that is considered likely to further our understanding of the functioning of the intact healthy human body under a variety of environmental (e.g. altitude, climatic, gravitational) and exercise conditions. Contexts include those relating to occupational, sporting, recreational and daily activities throughout the human life-span from childhood to old age.
