Abstract
The effects of intramuscular glycogen availability on human thermoregulation were studied in eight seminude subjects immersed in 18 degree C water for 90 min or until rectal temperature decreased to 35.5 degrees C. Each subject was immersed three times over a 3 week period. Each immersion followed 2.5 days of a specific dietary and/or exercise regimen designed to elicit low (L), normal (N), or high (H) glycogen levels in large skeletal muscle groups. Muscle glycogen concentration was determined in biopsies taken from the vastus lateralis muscle before and after each immersion.
