Effect of chronic exercise and/or leucine supplementation on circulating levels of amino acids. #, effect of training (P < 0.05); *, interaction for amino acids glycine and threonine (P < 0.05). Experimental groups: control diet (REF), diet supplemented with 5% L-leucine (LS), 6 weeks of endurance training (ET) plus standard diet, and diet supplemented with 5% L-leucine plus endurance training (LS+ET). Values are mean ± sem (n = 5-4 rats per group).
