LEARNING OBJECTIVES: • To realize that following a strength training session muscle protein breakdown exceeds muscle protein synthesis, resulting in several hours of net negative protein balance.

• To recognize that ingesting supplemental protein before and/or after a resistance workout is essential for attaining a net positive protein balance that enhances the potential for muscle development.

• To review research-based information and recommendations for effective pretraining/posttraining protein/carbohydrate supplementation.
