BACKGROUND The anabolic effect of resistance exercise is enhanced by the provision of dietary protein. [] Key MethodDESIGN Six healthy young men reported to the laboratory on 5 separate occasions to perform an intense bout of leg-based resistance exercise. After exercise, participants consumed, in a randomized order, drinks containing 0, 5, 10, 20, or 40 g whole egg protein.

Figures and Tables from this paper

Resistance exercise enhances myofibrillar protein synthesis with graded intakes of whey protein in older men.

It was determined that whole-body leucine oxidation increased in a stepwise, dose-dependent manner and the optimal whey protein dose for non-frail older adults to consume, to increase myofibrillar MPS above fasting rates, was 20 g.

Dose-dependent responses of myofibrillar protein synthesis with beef ingestion are enhanced with resistance exercise in middle-aged men.

Ingestion of 170 g of beef protein is required to stimulate a rise in myofibrillar MPS over and above that seen with lower doses, and an isolated bout of resistance exercise was potent in stimulating myofricular MPS, and acted additively with feeding.

Ingestion of Wheat Protein Increases In Vivo Muscle Protein Synthesis Rates in Healthy Older Men in a Randomized Trial.

Ingesting a larger amount of wheat protein substantially increases myofibrillar protein synthesis rates in healthy older men and the postprandial increase in plasma essential amino acid concentrations was greater after ingesting Whey-35 than after WPH-60.

Dose-response effects of dietary protein on muscle protein synthesis during recovery from endurance exercise in young men: a double-blind randomized trial

Whole-body net protein balance and dietary protein–derived amino acid incorporation into mitochondrial protein respond to increasing protein intake in a dose-dependent manner and are efficiently digested and absorbed into the circulation.

Myofibrillar protein synthesis following ingestion of soy protein isolate at rest and after resistance exercise in elderly men

The relationship between protein intake and MPS is both dose and protein source-dependent, with isolated soy showing a reduced ability, as compared to isolated whey protein, to stimulate MPS under both rested and post-exercise conditions.

Myofibrillar muscle protein synthesis rates subsequent to a meal in response to increasing doses of whey protein at rest and after resistance exercise.

A 20-g dose of whey protein is sufficient for the maximal stimulation of postabsorptive rates of myofibrillar MPS in rested and exercised muscle of ~80-kg resistance-trained, young men.

High-Quality Supplemental Protein Enhances Acute Muscle Protein Synthesis and Long-Term Strength Adaptations to Resistance Training in Young and Old Adults.

The extent to which protein quality modulates the anabolic response to protein ingestion and long-term adaptations to resistance exercise training is not well defined.

Role of Ingested Amino Acids and Protein in the Promotion of Resistance Exercise-Induced Muscle Protein Anabolism.

It was determined that a diminishing protein/AA supplement effect occurs over a prolonged exposure stimulus after exercise training, and it was found thatprotein/AA supplements, combined with RET, produced a positive, albeit minor, effect on the promotion of lean mass growth; a negligible effect on muscle mass; and a negligible to no additional effect on strength.

Protein-leucine fed dose effects on muscle protein synthesis after endurance exercise.

Ingesting 23 g of protein with 5 g of added leucine achieved near-maximal FSR after endurance exercise, an effect unlikely attributable to mTORC1-S6K-rpS6 signaling, insulin, or amino acids.

Protein feeding and exercise recovery

It is demonstrated that an acute bout of resistance exercise further augments the protein synthetic rate of muscle already stimulated by food intake, and the mechanism(s) underpinning the suggestion that a high protein diet may potentiate a better maintainence of endurance performance following intensified training could not be definitively elucidated.



Minimal whey protein with carbohydrate stimulates muscle protein synthesis following resistance exercise in trained young men.

It is concluded that a small dose of whey protein with carbohydrate (21 g) can stimulate a rise in MPS after resistance exercise in trained young men that would be supportive of a positive net protein balance, which, over time, would lead to hypertrophy.

Essential amino acids and muscle protein recovery from resistance exercise.

It is concluded that NEAA are not necessary for stimulation of NB and that there is a dose-dependent effect of EAA ingestion on muscle protein synthesis.

Mixed muscle and hepatic derived plasma protein metabolism is differentially regulated in older and younger men following resistance exercise.

The data indicate that mixed muscle and hepatic derived protein synthesis is differentially regulated in younger and older men in response to a single bout of moderate-intensity leg extension exercise, and suggest that with age may come a greater need to salvage or make available amino acids from exercise-induced muscle protein breakdown to mount an acute-phase response.

Whole body leucine metabolism during and after resistance exercise in fed humans.

It is concluded that circuit-set resistance exercise did not affect the measured variables of leucine metabolism, and large errors in calculating leukine oxidation and whole body protein synthesis during resistance exercise can occur if background 13CO2/12CO2 breath enrichment and bicarbonate retention factor changes are not accounted for.

Meal stimulation of albumin synthesis: a significant contributor to whole body protein synthesis in humans.

The data suggest that the stimulation of albumin synthesis observed during feeding prevents irreversible oxidative losses of a significant fraction of ingested essential amino acids and may serve as a vehicle to capture excess dietary amino acid and transport them to peripheral tissues to sustain local protein synthesis.

Postexercise net protein synthesis in human muscle from orally administered amino acids.

It is concluded that ingestion of oral essential amino acids results in a change from net muscle protein degradation to net muscleprotein synthesis after heavy resistance exercise in humans similar to that seen when the amino acids were infused.

Fasted‐state skeletal muscle protein synthesis after resistance exercise is altered with training

Resistance training modified the acute response of MPS to resistance exercise by dampening the increased synthesis of non‐myofibrillar proteins while maintaining the synthesis of myofibrillsar proteins.

Protein ingestion further augments S6K1 phosphorylation in skeletal muscle following resistance type exercise in males.

It is concluded that the availability of dietary protein further enhances phosphorylation of S6K1 during recovery from resistance type exercise.

Leucine-enriched essential amino acid and carbohydrate ingestion following resistance exercise enhances mTOR signaling and protein synthesis in human muscle.

The data suggest that enhanced activation of the mTOR signaling pathway is playing a role in the greater synthesis of muscle proteins when resistance exercise is followed by EAA+CHO ingestion.

Whole-body leucine and lysine metabolism: response to dietary protein intake in young men.

An effect of meals, modulated by their protein content, on the dynamics of whole-body amino acid metabolism is demonstrated, and they appear to be related to the nitrogen and amino acid requirements of the subject.
