The Effects of Pre-Exercise Blood Glucose on Responses to Short Duration High Intensity Exercise

Emma Swanwick and Martyn Matthews

Article Type: Original Article | First Published: January 08, 2018

Carbohydrate ingestion prior to exercise has been the subject of much debate over the last few decades with a range of individual responses observed with different carbohydrate loads, across a time period of 15-75 minutes pre-exercise. It has been argued that pre-exercise carbohydrate feeding, and subsequent insulin response, added to the onset of moderate intensity exercise can lead to hypoglyca...
