  • Maximising Anabolic Potential

    The processes of protein synthesis and protein breakdown occur concurrently in the muscle, and it is this constant protein turnover that allows the muscle fibre to change its protein structure accordingly, and adapt to the training stimuli over time. On a gross level, net protein balance determines whether muscle fibre size is increased (hypertrophy) or […]

  • The Effects of Consuming Varying Amount of Protein and Leucine on Protein Synthesis

    Protein synthesis has been one of the most talked about areas of sports nutrition over the last few years – specifically, how to maximally stimulate protein synthesis post-training. One of the main roles of protein post-training is to stimulate protein synthesis, and recent research has focussed on the important role leucine plays on stimulating the […]
