Lessons from cell signalling: promoting endurance training - induced adaptations of skeletal muscle through nutritional interventions

Premium

James Morton

Endurance exercise training induces a number of adaptations in skeleta lmuscle, which function to improve exercise capacity and performance. The most important of these adaptations is widely recognised as the increase inmitochondrial mass (i.e. mitochondrial biogenesis), which ultimately, permits athletes to exercise at higher intensities for a longer duration.(10) The mechanism by which an increase in muscle mitochondria induces an improvement in exercise capacity and performance, is by reducing the disturbance to metabolic homeostasis for a given exercise intensity.(10)
