Blood Ammonia and Lactate Concentration in Repeated Arm and Leg Exercise
Metabolic changes induced by exercise depend on the type of exercise, its intensity, and duration (2, 7, 8). A close relation was found between the increase in concentration of some metabolites and the decrease power output and fatigue development (1, 2, 8). It was found that the metabolic changes also depended on the kind of muscle engaged in exercise. Post-exercise metabolic changes in muscles can modify the ability to perform following exercise. Karlsson et al. (4) showed that metabolic changes also occur in nonexercising muscles.
