Local temperature changes and human skeletal muscle metabolism

Abstract The aim of this review is to describe the effects induced by local temperature changes on human skeletal muscle metabolism. More specifically, we will consider the influence of temperature on the mechanical properties of muscle contraction, on aerobic metabolism, anaerobic metabolism and on the Lohmann reaction. The text has been voluntarily organized on the basis of a simple bioenergetic model describing the different energy fluxes appearing in the muscle system. This approach should better highlight some of the points that still need to be investigated. Although it was not always possible to restrict the discussion to human muscle, the references report mainly data obtained directly on humans or on isolated human fibres. A short comment on skeletal muscle temperature measurement techniques, on humans, is also included.
