Resistance Exercise and Food

Study Description

Food First Approach to Stimulate Muscle Protein Synthesis in Healthy Adults

In a crossover design 10 young healthy adults (20-35 y) will receive stable isotope tracer infusions and perform a single bout of resistance exercise. Immediately after exercise participants will ingest either 3.5 oz of Salmon fillet or its constituent macronutrients as isolated amino acids and fat. Repeated blood and breath samples as well as muscle biopsies will be collected to determine whole body amino acid kinetics, muscle amino acid transporters, anabolic signalling and myofibrillar protein synthesis rates during the trials
