The present study examined whether a high protein diet prevents the impaired leukocyte redistribution in response to acute exercise caused by a large volume of high-intensity exercise training. Eight cyclists (VO2max: 64.2±6.5mLkg(-1)min(-1)) undertook two separate weeks of high-intensity training while consuming either a high protein diet (3gkg(-1)proteinBM(-1)day(-1)) or an energy and carbohydrate-matched control diet (1.5gkg(-1)proteinBM(-1)day(-1)). High-intensity training weeks were… CONTINUE READING
