Yes. Numerous studies have shown similarities in post-exercise hormonal levels in higher intensity, shorter-duration resistance-training sessions and lower-intensity, longer-duration aerobic-training sessions. Glycogen levels would be depleted. Insulin sensitivity would be very high.
The combination of increased insulin-sensitivity, increased catecholamine and increased growth hormone levels would discourage any fat storage. Testosterone levels would be increased so protein synthesis would be increased. Cortisol levels would be increased too so it is important to consume carbohydrates and protein to get cortisol levels back to normal.
I found the following information interesting:
The following information is sourced from Rasmussen et al., published in the Journal of Applied
Physiology (1), which discusses rates of protein synthesis under several different conditions. It shows
how spending a little time and money on the small things can benefit you tremendously in the long run.
At rest, with increased insulin levels, protein synthesis is increased by about 50% when compared
with normal insulin levels.
At rest with high amino acids in the blood, protein synthesis increased by 150% when compared
with normal levels of amino acids in the blood.
After weight training, protein synthesis increased by 100% versus pre training values.
After weight training with high levels of amino acids in the blood protein synthesis increased by
200% versus after weight training with normal blood amino levels.
After weight training with high aminos in the blood and high insulin in the blood, protein synthesis
increased by 400% versus normal post workout amino acid and insulin levels. (2,3)
