THIS ARTICLE INTRODUCES COACHES AND STRENGTH/POWER ATHLETES TO THE CONCEPT OF STRENGTH NUTRITION AND PROVIDES A BRIEF OVERVIEW OF MECHANISMS THAT PROMOTES AN ATHLETE'S ANABOLIC POTENTIAL AFTER RESISTANCE EXERCISE AND CARBOHYDRATE, PROTEIN, AND/OR AMINO ACID INGESTION THROUGH THE PATHWAY OF ADAPTATION MODEL.

Evidence-based recommendations for natural bodybuilding contest preparation: nutrition and
TLDR
Caloric intake should be set at a level that results in bodyweight losses of approximately 0.5 to 1%/wk to maximize muscle retention and increasing carbohydrate intake at the end of preparation has a theoretical rationale to improve appearance, however it is under studied. Expand
Evidence-based recommendations for natural bodybuilding contest preparation: nutrition and supplementation
TLDR
Caloric intake should be set at a level that results in bodyweight losses of approximately 0.5 to 1%/wk to maximize muscle retention and increasing carbohydrate intake at the end of preparation has a theoretical rationale to improve appearance, however it is understudied. Expand
A systematic review of dietary protein during caloric restriction in resistance trained lean athletes: a case for higher intakes.
TLDR
Protein needs for energy-restricted resistance-trained athletes are likely 2.3-3.1g/kg of FFM scaled upwards with severity of caloric restriction and leanness, and recommendations for these athletes are provided. Expand
Triphasic multinutrient supplementation during acute resistance exercise improves session volume load and reduces muscle damage in strength-trained athletes.
TLDR
Data indicate that although triphasic multinutrient supplementation did not produce a more favorable anabolic profile, it improved acute resistance exercise performance while attenuating muscle damage in strength-trained athletes. Expand
The effect of nutrition on physiological responses of resistance training in muscle and blood in young men
TLDR
This study examined, if the nutritional variances between individuals are associated with the responses and adaptations of heavy resistance training (RT) in muscle and blood in young men who did not have a regular RT background. Expand
Nutrition Recommendations for Bodybuilders in the Off-Season: A Narrative Review
TLDR
This review evaluated the scientific literature and provides nutrition and dietary supplement recommendations for natural bodybuilders during the off-season phase that might yield ergogenic effects that can be beneficial for bodybuilders. Expand
Effect of strength training on regional hypertrophy of the elbow flexor muscles
TLDR
The chronic effects of strength training on muscle hypertrophy in different regions of the elbow flexor muscles is investigated to determine the proximal, medial, distal, and mean cross‐sectional areas (CSA) of the elbows. Expand
A COMPARISON OF THE NATIONAL FOOTBALL LEAGUE COACHES STRENGTH AND CONDITIONING PRACTICES 1997-1998 TO 2018
This study describes the results of a survey of the strength and conditioning practices of the National Football League’s strength and conditioning coaches. The survey response rate was 28.1% (9 ofExpand

Nutritional Interventions to Promote Post-Exercise Muscle Protein Synthesis
TLDR
The interaction between exercise and nutrition is not only important for athletes, but is also of important clinical relevance in the elderly. Expand
Nutrition Before, During, and After Exercise for the Strength/Power Athlete
TLDR
This chapter begins with a description of factors associated with optimal performance of the strength/ power athlete and provides training and nutritional recommendations that serve as the foundation for a successful strength/power athlete. Expand

TLDR
To date, the most promising strategies to augment gains in muscle size and strength appear to be consumption of protein-carbohydrate calories before and after resistance exercise, and creatine supplementation. Expand

TLDR
Consumption of post-exercise recovery drinks containing protein hydrolysates, added leucine, and high-glycaemic carbohydrates in conjunction with appropriate resistance training may lead to increased skeletal muscle hypertrophy and strength. Expand
Nutritional Needs of Strength/Power Athletes
Proper dietary guidelines for strength/power athletes have long been lacking. The failure of coaches and the strength/power athletes themselves to recognize the importance of diet is attributable toExpand
Innovations in athletic preparation: Role of substrate availability to modify training adaptation and performance
TLDR
Diet – training interactions with the potential to alter training adaptation and performance are discussed and there has been a resurgence of interest in the potential for protein ingestion to improve performance and/or promote training-induced adaptations in skeletal muscle. Expand
Effects of whey isolate, creatine, and resistance training on muscle hypertrophy.
TLDR
Although WP and/or CrM seem to promote greater strength gains and muscle morphology during RE training, the hypertrophy responses within the groups varied, and these differences in skeletal muscle morphology may have important implications for various populations and, therefore, warrant further investigation.

TLDR
The pathway of adaptation is proposed as a model to assist in integrating research findings from the current body of literature and future studies examining various diet and resistance exercise configurations. Expand
Effects of supplement timing and resistance exercise on skeletal muscle hypertrophy.
TLDR
Examining the effects of supplement timing compared with supplementation in the hours not close to the workout on muscle-fiber hypertrophy, strength, and body composition during a 10-wk RE program concluded that supplement timing represents a simple but effective strategy that enhances the adaptations desired from RE-training.
