BACKGROUNDː Spinning exercise is one of the most popular types of exercise in fitness industry. Its effects on the post exercise metabolism compared to the isocaloric cyclic endurance exercise are not fully understood. The aim of the present study was to compare the effects of isocaloric (299.1 ± 10.8 kcal) spinning vs endurance exercise on fat and carbohydrate utilization, glucose, lactate, glycerol and NEFA blood concentration during exercise and recovery.
METHODSː Six recreationally active males (age: 23.5 ± 0.71), were tested in two conditions: 1) 30-min spinning; 2) isocaloric continuous exercise. Each trial was followed by a 3-h recovery. Rates of carbohydrate and fat oxidation, the blood glucose, lactate, glycerol and NEFA concentration were assessed at rest, during exercise and recovery.
RESULTSː Spinning induced significantly higher fat and lower carbohydrate oxidation rate during a recovery period in comparison to isocaloric endurance exercise trial. Spinning induced almost six-fold higher increase in lipid to carbohydrate oxidation rate ratio at the beginning of second hour of post-exercise period in comparison to constant intensity trial and reached similar values at 3 hours after exercise. Blood lactate was higher (p < 0.01) at the end of exercise in spinning than continuous exercise (8.57 ± 0.9 vs 0.72 ± 0.1 mmol·L-1), but became similar at the 60 min of recovery.
CONCLUSIONSː These data indicate that spinning induces higher metabolic responses during recovery period, and most effectively shifts the pattern of substrate use toward lipids vs isocaloric endurance exercise.
