Nicole Gendreau Kin 355 sec 3 October 4, 2011 Critical Analysis The paper examined in this critical analysis is Influence of a Carbohydrate-Electrolyte Solution Ingested During Running on Muscle Glycogen Utilization in Fed Humans by C. Chrissanthopoulos, C. Willams, and A. Nowitz. The purpose of this experiment was to determine if carbohydrate-electrolyte consumption during running would influence the use of muscle glycogen. To explore the effects of consuming a 6.9% carbohydrate-electrolyte solution during exercise the experimenters designed a test to measure changes in glycogen use. The subjects were eight male recreational runners between the ages of 25-38 years. The first trial was for 30 minutes, and the second trial was for 60 minutes. Three hours before the second trial, the subjects consumed a high carbohydrate meal of 86% carbohydrates, 11% protein, and 3% fat. During the trials subjects ran for either 30 or 60 minutes on a treadmill at 70% of their VO 2 Max. During the trials subjects consumed either the carbohydrate-
