Ok, it works like this....exercise activates "receptors" on your cell walls.
It is these receptors that insulin interfaces with to transport sugars
through the cell wall.  The more exercise...the more receptors...the more
receptors... the more efficiently the insulin works.
The last article that I read said that the half life for the receptors was
about 3 days...although this may be dated now.

So when you have insulin reactions after exercise it is not just because you
burned up glucose...you also made it so that your cells use insulin more
efficiently...and that effect can last a couple of days-James
