Nutrient Timing and the Post Exercise Window

This literature review aims to recognise nutrient-nutrient interactions and its possible implications in modulating protein synthesis, and hypertrophic responses to intensive type training. The two main nutrients that require specific focus are protein and carbohydrates, as they are generally found in high quantities in meals following post exercise that have been known to initiate the adaptive responses to facilitate muscular repair (Kerstick et al, 2008). 890 more words

Publish Paper Review 1-Exercising and Synthesis in Muscles (Workout under the skin) by Shiv Shiv

The purpose of the review is to relay to one how muscle protein turnover is regulated in humans during strenuous physical activities and how it is affected by environmental factors, such as nature of nutrients, the natural differences between males and females, the rate of production of proteins and getting older. 529 more words
