Muscle protein synthesis, whole‐body resistance exercise and whey protein

The response of muscle protein synthesis following whole‐body resistance exercise is greater following 40 g than 20 g of ingested whey protein The current thought is that post-training protein synthesis is maxed out with 20-25 grams of whey. However, much of the literature addressing protein requirements post resistance training have used protocols that include multiple sets of only a single exercise targeting a single muscle group. Since a single training session should most often target multiple muscle groups with multiple exercises, it is reasonable that maximal protein synthesis may be supported by higher protein intake. Nice to see some additional evidence where training is more similar to what may actually be implemented. As always, it is probably best to simply cover all of your basis and don’t wait until training has ended. Eat a reasonable pre-training meal. Sip on a whey/carb shake while training. Finish or have another whey/carb shake post training (or just eat a good meal). The response of muscle protein synthesis following whole‐body resistance exercise is greater following 40 g than 20 g of ingested whey protein http://physreports.physiology.org/content/4/15/e12893 Abstract The currently accepted amount of protein required to achieve maximal stimulation of myofibrillar protein synthesis (MPS) following resistance exercise is 20–25 g. However, the influence of lean body mass (LBM) on the response of MPS to protein ingestion is unclear. Our aim was to assess the influence of LBM, both...
