Glycogen loading: advantages but possible disadvantages.

PMID:  7248688     Owner:  NLM     Status:  MEDLINE    
Carbohydrate loading enables an athlete to build up stores of muscle glycogen. Such raised levels increase work times and are therefore of real benefit to long-distance runners. It is unclear how frequently the regimen can be repeated with the same advantageous results. There are possible disadvantages in the regimen, and even dangers in older subjects.
