Abstract

SUMMARY: RESISTANCE TRAINING IMPROVES LEAN BODY MASS AND MUSCULAR STRENGTH. THE ADDITION OF HIGH-QUALITY PROTEIN AND CARBOHYDRATE TAKEN IMMEDIATELY AFTER RESISTANCE EXERCISE ENHANCES THE ANABOLIC RESPONSE TO AN ACUTE BOUT OF RESISTANCE EXERCISE. THIS CONCEPT OF FOCUSING ON “WHEN TO EAT” IN RELATION TO THE RESISTANCE EXERCISE BOUT IS KNOWN AS NUTRIENT TIMING. THE FOLLOWING ARTICLE DISCUSSES THE CONCEPT OF NUTRIENT TIMING AND ITS IMPACT ON RECOVERY, NET PROTEIN BALANCE, AND IMPROVING MUSCLE MASS AND MUSCULAR STRENGTH.
