I'm not sure if it's possible, but maybe there are transport mechanisms that can move glycogen from inactive areas to where they are needed. This is sort of how fat utilization works. For example, you can burn fat from your glutes while using an arm ergometer.

Great points!

By what mechanisms do you guys think glucose is leaving the cell then, since glucose itself once phosphorylated is stuck (if it remains as glucose that is!)
