PURPOSE The purpose of this investigation was 1) to determine whether HMB supplementation results in an increase in strength and FFM during 8 wk of resistance training and 2) determine whether a higher dose of HMB provides additional benefits. METHODS Thirty-seven, untrained, college-aged men were assigned to one of three groups: 0, 38, or 76 mg x kg(-1)(More)
The purpose of this investigation was to determine the effects of postexercise eucaloric carbohydrate-protein feedings on muscle glycogen restoration after an exhaustive cycle ergometer exercise bout. Seven male collegiate cyclists [age = 25.6 +/- 1.3 yr, height = 180.9 +/- 3.2 cm, wt = 75.4 +/- 4.0 kg, peak oxygen uptake (VO(2 peak)) = 4.20 +/- 0.2 l/min](More)
PURPOSE The purpose of this investigation was to examine the effects of differing amounts of beta-hydroxy-beta-methylbutyrate (HMB), 0, 36, and 76 mg x kg(-1) x d(-1), on hematology, hepatic and renal function during 8 wk of resistance training. METHODS Thirty-seven, untrained collegiate males and were randomly assigned to one of the three groups, 0, 38,(More)

The incidence of cardiovascular disease increases progressively with age, but aging may affect men and women differently. Age-associated changes in vascular structure and function may manifest in impaired nutritive blood flow, although the regulation of nutritive blood flow in healthy aging is not well understood. The purpose of this study was to determine(More)
