muscle building dietMuscle hypertrophy following resistance training includes activation of muscle protein synthesis (MPS). However, new studies suggest that may not be the situation. Researchers measured muscle protein synthesis after the first session of resistance workout and then examined the relation between muscle protein synthesis and hypertrophy after 16 weeks of training with an MRI scanner. 

The subjects ingested a protein-rich beverage (30 grams of whey protein) immediately after their exercise session and with breakfast on non-training days. At the end of the study, rates of MPS were increased 235±38% above rest 60-180 mins post-exercise and 184±28% 180-360 minutes post-exercise. Quadriceps volume increased 7.9 ± 1.6% after training. Now here comes the shocking finding: There was no connection between adjustments in quadriceps muscle quantity and acute rates of MPS gauged over one to three hours, 3 to six hrs, or the sum of the one- to six-hour post-exercise period. The researchers concluded that severe steps of MPS adhering to an initial exposure to RE in amateurs are not correlated with muscular tissue hypertrophy following chronic RT. – FLEX
