PURPOSE: This study assessed the influence of an acute aerobic exercise bout on molecular responses to subsequent resistance exercise. METHODS: Nine physically active men performed ∼45 min one-legged cycle ergometry exercise, and 4 × 7 maximal concentric-eccentric knee extensions for each leg 6 hrs later. Thus, one limb was subjected to aerobic and resistance exercise (AE+RE), and the contralateral limb to resistance exercise (RE) only. Knee extensor peak power was determined. Biopsies were obtained from m.vastus lateralis before, 15 min and 3 hrs after resistance exercise. Analysis determined glycogen content, mRNA-levels (vascular endothelial growth factor; VEGF, peroxisome proliferator-activated receptor-γ coactivator-1; PGC-1α, muscle RING-finger protein-1; MuRF-1, atrogin-1, myostatin) and phosphorylated proteins (mammalian target of rapamyacin; mTOR, p70S6 kinase; p70S6K, ribosomal protein S6; rpS6, eukaryotic elongation factor 2; eEF2). RESULTS: Peak power was similar in AE+RE and RE. After resistance exercise, the time-course of glycogen utilization and protein signaling was similar across legs. However, phosphorylation of mTOR and p70S6K was elevated in AE+RE vs. RE (main effect P < 0.05). VEGF and PGC-1α was higher in AE+RE than RE at PRE and POST1 (P < 0.05). Myostatin was lower in AE+RE vs. RE at PRE and POST1 (P < 0.05), and downregulated in RE after resistance exercise. Atrogin-1 was higher in AE+RE than RE at PRE and POST1 (P < 0.05), and decreased following resistance exercise in AE+RE. MuRF-1 was similar across legs. No difference for any marker was evident at POST2. CONCLUSION: These results suggest that acute aerobic exercise alters molecular events regulating muscle protein turnover during the early recovery period from subsequent resistance exercise.
