Muscle glycogen (g/100 g muscle)
Fig. 8.10 Relationship between initial glycogen concentration in the quadriceps muscle and maximal work time (until exhaustion) in nine different subjects who followed different diets before each test. The greater the initial glycogen concentration, the longer the ability to sustain exercise. Redrawn from Bergström, J., Hermansen, E., Hultman, E. & Saltin, B.
