Abstract:

Albino mice were forced to swim to exhaustion in water baths of different temperatures. Histochemical and microchemical analyses of various tissues from exercised and control mice were made. There was found a positive correlation between the following Bath temperature and swimming time liver glycogen and body weight muscle and liver glycogen. Negative correlations were found between liver glycogen and bath temperature liver glycogen and swimming time. Muscle glycogen is held relatively constant after the first twenty minutes of swimming.
