Abstract (Summary)

The purpose of this study was to compare the effect of an acute high-intensity over a low-intensity resistance training program of equal work volume on the impact of acute hyperglycemia in glucose and insulin responses of resistance trained males. Thirteen male (23.43 ± 2.18yrs) participated in three randomized testing sessions, where CON (no-exercise) separated by 48 hours, HI(5x4, 90% 1-RM), and LO (3x14, 65% 1-RM), each separated by 96 hours. Participants consumed a high glucose drink (2 g glucose/kg body weight) before undergoing each testing session. At 30 mins post-consumption, participants underwent either of the randomized exercise sessions, HI or LO. Initial start of the each treatment was signified by capillary venous blood samples collected immediately post-consumption of the glucose beverage over 120 minutes, for 30-minute increments. HI session glucose area under the curve significantly greater ( p < 0.05) than CON and LO. Acute hyperglycemia can be induced and maintained in healthy, young males.
