Effects of ingesting carbohydrate and branched-chain amino acids on markers of skeletal muscle protein synthesis of the insulin-PI3K-mTOR signal transduction pathways in response to a bout of heavy resistance exercise.
Purpose: To determine if activity of the MAPK-ERK or PI3K-mTOR insulin signaling pathway is increased in response to an acute lower body resistance exercise (RE) bout and supplemental BCAA + CHO or CHO ingestion. Methods: ...
Effects of prophylactic supplementation of N-acetyl-cysteine and epigallocatechin gallate on markers of oxidative stress, inflammation and apoptosis after eccentric contraction-induced injury in untrained males.
The purpose of this study was the examine the effects of 14 days of prophylactic supplementation of N-acetyl-cysteine (NAC) and epigallocatechin gallate (EGCG) on changes in peak torque production, muscle soreness, muscle ...
Effects of arachidonic acid supplementation on training adaptations in resistance-trained males.
The purpose of this study was to determine if 50 days of resistance training and arachidonic acid (AA) supplementation elicited changes in body composition, performance variables, hormonal/cytokine levels (i.e. prostaglandins, ...
The effects of ingesting an anti-inflammatory nutritional supplement while participating in a resistance training program on indices of body composition and metabolic, cardiovascular, muscular, and hemodynamic function in overweight females.
Sedentary, healthy, overweight women (n=40) participated in a full-body resistance training program 3 days/week. The study was performed in a randomized, double blind, placebo-controlled fashion. Participants followed a ...
The effects of creatine ethyl ester supplementation combined with resistance training on body composition, muscle mass and performance, and intramuscular creatine uptake in males.
Creatine monohydrate has become one of the most popular ingested nutritional supplements due to its potential enhancement of athletic performance. Creatine absorption from the serum into skeletal muscle occurs through the ...
