The purpose of this study was to evaluate the extent of anaerobic glycogenolysis, as indicated by intramuscular lactate concentration, after 10 and 30 s of supramaximal exercise and to compare male and female subjects in this regard. Fifteen males and seven females performed two cycle exercise bouts against a resistance which was standardized so that one pedal revolution resulted in 4.90 J work X kg body wt-1. A muscle biopsy was obtained after 10- and 30-s exercise bouts and analyzed for lactate concentration. The lactate concentrations averaged 36 and 61 mmol X kg dry wt-1 after the 10- and 30-s exercise bouts, respectively. The male subjects had higher (P less than 0.005) lactate concentrations and generated higher (P less than 0.001) power outputs for both exercise bouts. When the mean lactate concentrations were statistically adjusted after controlling for between-group variation in power output, no difference was evident between groups for the 10- or the 30-s lactate value. The results are evidence that pronounced lactate accumulation occurs during supramaximal exercise of a 10-s duration, suggesting that glycolysis can occur within this time frame. This is in contrast to the theory that glycolysis does not occur until endogenous phosphagen levels reach some critically low value, not thought to be obtainable within the first 10 s of supramaximal exercise.
