Conflicts/Disclosures of Interest Form:
Under International Society of Sports Nutrition (ISSN) policy, submission of a completed SFI is required prior to submission of a manuscript to ISSN (see #2 below as it pertains to a presentation at the ISSN Conference or Symposia). In accordance with the guidelines on conflict of interest of ISSN, all authors and presenters are required to indicate if they have a relationship that, in the context of the subject matter and content of their submission, could be perceived as a real or apparent conflict of interest. This pertains to relationships with dietary supplement, pharmaceutical, food, beverage, or cosmetic ingredient and/or finished goods manufacturers and/or marketers, biomedical/analytical device manufacturers, contract manufacturers, contract laboratories, inventor/co-inventorship of a patent pending or issued, or with other corporations whose products or services are related in any way to the subject matter and content of the submission.
Disclosure is to include any relationship that may bias one's submission or which, if known, could give the perception of bias. Such relationships include, but are not limited to, employment by or receipt of research funds from an industrial concern, ownership of stock, membership on a standing advisory council, committee, or board of directors, authorship of a book of related title/topic, or being publicly associated with a company or its products or services. Other areas of real or perceived conflicts of interest could include receiving honoraria or consulting fees, receipt of gifts, gratuities, loans or special favors (including trips or speaker's fees), or receiving equipment in or out of the context of a research grant from such corporations or individuals representing such corporations. Any such relationships will be disclosed to the readership in the final published form. Each author must complete the SFI and sign and certify.
It is the aim of ISSN to provide content of exceptional intellectual quality and ethical substance. Completion of the SFI will preserve the trust and transparency essential to professional objectivity.

Ivy, J.L., Regulation of Muscle Glycogen Repletion and Tissue Repair. Department of Kinesiology and Health Education, The University of Texas, Austin , Texas 78712-0360, USA . johnivy@...
During sustained high intensity exercise muscle glycogen stores are depleted or severely reduced, and muscle damage can be extensive. Muscle glycogen is an essential fuel source for the regeneration of ATP during sustained high intensity anaerobic and aerobic exercise. Therefore, its replenishment following strenuous exercise is paramount to recovery. Likewise, muscle tissue repair is essential for recovery and required before appropriate training adaptations can occur. Following exercise the muscles are highly sensitive to nutrient activation, but this sensitivity declines with time. Therefore, to maximize the rate of muscle glycogen repletion, supplementation must occur soon after the completion of exercise. Additionally, the supplementation should be a combination of both carbohydrate and protein. This combination of macronutrients results in an accelerated rate of muscle glycogen storage possibly by activating the glycogen synthesis pathway by two different mechanisms. First, it raises the plasma insulin level beyond that typical of a carbohydrate supplement, which may augment muscle glucose uptake and activate glycogen synthase, the rate-limiting enzyme for glycogen synthesis. Second, the increase in plasma amino acids that occur as a result of protein consumption may activate glycogen synthase through an insulin independent pathway, thus having an additive effect on the activity of this enzyme. Continued supplementation at 2-hour intervals can maintain an active glycogen recovery for up to 8 hours post exercise. The combination of carbohydrate and protein provided immediately post exercise is also ideal for stimulation of protein synthesis and tissue repair. This is due to the additive effect of insulin and amino acids on the enzymes controlling amino acid transport, protein translation and protein degradation. Moreover, research has demonstrated that appropriate nutrient supplementation post exercise can have a significant impact on subsequent physical performance. This review will discuss the appropriate supplementation strategies for rapid recovery for strenuous exercise, including the most appropriate timing and types of supplement consumption, and the impact this will have on subsequent physical performance.
