Hmm, is this really so? I always thought maximal or submaximal strength efforts like sixes to tens primarily use CrP for fuel. Im having a hard time to believe glycogen would have any effect on maximal muscle strength other than by an increased intracellular pressure and possibly by an increased mental alertness. From what Ive learned maximal muscle work requires far more energy than can be converted from glycogen, even anaerobically. This is a really interesting question though. Let me know your thoughts.
