Abstract

Exercise stimulates growth hormone (GH) release, but there are conflicting reports regarding the acute effects of exercise on circulating ghrelin and insulin-like growth factor (IGF) concentrations. This investigation examined (1) the effect of a single sprint on circulating GH, ghrelin and IGF concentrations as well as a marker of IGF-I bioactivity, and (2) whether the number of muscle actions performed during a sprint influences these responses. Seven healthy men completed 3 trials in a random order. In two exercise trials they performed a single 30-s sprint on a cycle ergometer against a resistance equivalent to either 7% (FAST) or 9% (SLOW) of their body mass. In the other they rested in the laboratory (CON). Blood samples were taken pre-, immediately post-, 10 and 30 min post-exercise, and at equivalent times in the CON trial. Total ghrelin concentrations declined after the sprint and were significantly lower after 30 min of recovery than they were pre-exercise (pre-exercise vs. 30 min; FAST, 0.62 (0.19) vs. 0.49 (0.16) mu g/L, P
