International Society of Sports Nutrition position stand: protein and exercise
TLDR
Vast research supports the contention that individuals engaged in regular exercise training require more dietary protein than sedentary individuals, and supplemental protein in various forms are a practical way of ensuring adequate and quality protein intake for athletes.
International society of sports nutrition position stand: caffeine and performance
TLDR
The scientific literature does not support caffeine-induced diuresis during exercise, or any harmful change in fluid balance that would negatively affect performance, and the literature is equivocal when considering the effects of caffeine supplementation on strength-power performance.
ISSN exercise & sport nutrition review: research & recommendations
TLDR
This paper is a five year update of the sports nutrition review article published as the lead paper to launch the JISSN and presents a well-referenced overview of the current state of the science related to how to optimize training and athletic performance through nutrition.
The Antioxidant Role of Glutathione and N-Acetyl-Cysteine Supplements and Exercise-Induced Oxidative Stress
TLDR
Exercise enthusiasts and researchers have become interested in recent years to identify any means to help minimize the detrimental effects of oxidative stress that are commonly associated with intense and unaccustomed exercise.
Effects of oral creatine and resistance training on myosin heavy chain expression.
TLDR
Long-term Cr supplementation increases muscle strength and size, possibly as a result of increased MHC synthesis.
The Effects of Mesocycle‐Length Weight Training Programs Involving Periodization and Partially Equated Volumes on Upper and Lower Body Strength
TLDR
It was concluded that a mesocycle-length weight training program incorporating periodization is superior in eliciting upper and lower body strength gains when compared to programs with partially equated volumes.
International Society of Sports Nutrition Position Stand: protein and exercise
TLDR
Supplementation is a practical way of ensuring intake of adequate protein quality and quantity, while minimizing caloric intake, particularly for athletes who typically complete high volumes of training.
Effects of resistance training and protein plus amino acid supplementation on muscle anabolism, mass, and strength
TLDR
Ten-wks of resistance training with 20 g protein and amino acids ingested 1 h before and after exercise is more effective than carbohydrate placebo in up-regulating markers of muscle protein synthesis and anabolism along with subsequent improvements in muscle performance.
ISSN Exercise & Sport Nutrition Review: Research & Recommendations
Sport nutrition is a constantly evolving field with literally thousands of research papers published annually. For this reason, keeping up to date with the literature is often difficult. This paper
Resistance exercise-induced changes of inflammatory gene expression within human skeletal muscle
TLDR
The results indicate that resistance exercise is capable of up-regulating transcription of numerous inflammatory mediators within skeletal muscle, and these appear to be worthy of future examination in chronic studies.
