The role of increased dietary protein intake in facilitating skeletal muscle adaptations associated with endurance training is now gaining acceptance ( Moore et al., 2014 ). Indeed, consuming protein before ( Coffey et al., 2011 ), during ( Hulston et al., 2011 ), and/or after ( Rowlands et

The Drinkwater four-way fractionation model uses the unisex phantom model to partition total body mass into four compartments—FM, skeletal muscle mass (SMM; intramuscular adipose tissue included), bone mass, and residual mass ( Drinkwater

effects of NO 3 − supplementation, include improvements in muscle vasodilation and blood flow, 3 metabolic responses, 4 and contractile force. 5 Moreover, it is well documented that type II, fast-twitch skeletal muscle is more hypoxic 3 and acidic 6 compared with type I, slow-twitch muscle during

Previous research has demonstrated that having adequate lower extremity and upper body muscle strength (generally defined as averting the lower tertile or quartile) reduces the risk of all-cause mortality 1 – 3 ; however, less overt is the importance of skeletal muscle strength on cancer

In addition, several investigations have indicated that the trunk region is most affected by recent food and fluid intake, and these effects are manifested as increased lean soft tissue (LST
