  Purpose

The purpose of this study is to determine whether glucose-fructose intake during training increases lactate transport and oxidation and improve endurance performance.

Primary Outcome Measures:
  • Change in lactate transport [ Time Frame: At baseline (before training) and after the 3-week training protocol ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    Measurement of lactate production, utilization, oxidation and clearance during a 90 min cycling exercise at 50% VO2 max (measured with 13C-lactate)


Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • Change in muscle monocarboxylate transporters (MCTs) expression and protein content [ Time Frame: At baseline (before training) and after the 3-week training protocol ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    MCTs expression (mRNA) and protein content after muscle biopsy


Estimated Enrollment: 24
Study Start Date: May 2012
Estimated Study Completion Date: December 2013
Estimated Primary Completion Date: December 2013 (Final data collection date for primary outcome measure)
Arms Assigned Interventions
Experimental: Glucose-fructose
Participants will take glucose-fructose drinks during training sessions
Dietary Supplement: Glucose-fructose
0.8 g/h glucose and 0.5 g/h fructose during training
Experimental: Water
Participants will take only water during training sessions
Dietary Supplement: Water
Only water intake during training

Detailed Description:

The study will enroll 24 healthy male volunteers. After baseline assessment of lactate transport and endurance performance, subjects will be randomized to either a 3-week intervention arm in which they will train with glucose-fructose intake during training, or to a control arm (water during training). After this 3-week intervention, lactate transport and endurance performance will be assessed again.
