Abstract
The study compared glycogen depletion in active skeletal muscle after light and moderate exercise in both cold and comfortable ambient conditions. The results suggest that muscle substrate utilization is increased during light exercise in a cold environment as compared to similar exercise at a comfortable temperature, probably due to shivering thermogenesis. Heat produced with higher exercise intensities seems to be sufficient to prevent shivering and the accompanying glycogenolysis.
