Exercise training allows one to perform the same absolute exercise bout with less of a challenge to homeostasis. The metabolic adaptations include increases in the activity of tricarboxylic acid (TCA) cycle enzymes such as citrate synthase and the β-oxidation enzyme β-hydroxyacyl-CoA dehydrogenase (β-HAD) as well as increases in glycogen content within the exercise-trained muscles. The same absolute exercise intensity can then be undertaken with higher rates of fat oxidation, lower rates of blood glucose use, delayed muscle glycogen depletion, and, as such, improved exercise performance.
