Biopsy samples were obtained from vastus lateralis of eight female subjects before and after a maximal 30-s sprint on a nonmotorized treadmill and were analyzed for glycogen, phosphagens, and glycolytic intermediates. Peak power output averaged 534.4 +/- 85.0 W and was decreased by 50 +/- 10% at the end of the sprint. Glycogen, phosphocreatine, and ATP were decreased by 25, 64, and 37%, respectively. The glycolytic intermediates above phosphofructokinase increased approximately 13-fold, whereas fructose 1,6-diphosphate and triose phosphates only increased 4- and 2-fold. Muscle pyruvate and lactate were increased 19 and 29 times. After 3 min recovery, blood pH was decreased by 0.24 units and plasma epinephrine and norepinephrine increased from 0.3 +/- 0.2 nmol/l and 2.7 +/- 0.8 nmol/l at rest to 1.3 +/- 0.8 nmol/l and 11.7 +/- 6.6 nmol/l. A significant correlation was found between the changes in plasma catecholamines and estimated ATP production from glycolysis (norepinephrine, glycolysis r = 0.78, P less than 0.05; epinephrine, glycolysis r = 0.75, P less than 0.05) and between postexercise capillary lactate and muscle lactate concentrations (r = 0.82, P less than 0.05). The study demonstrated that a significant reduction in ATP occurs during maximal dynamic exercise in humans. The marked metabolic changes caused by the treadmill sprint and its close simulation of free running makes it a valuable test for examining the factors that limit performance and the etiology of fatigue during brief maximal exercise.
