Episode 153 of the Institute of Performance Nutrition‘s “We Do Science” podcast! In this episode, Laurent Bannock discusses muscle protein synthesis and exercise and nutrition with Professor Kevin Tipton (The Institute of Performance Nutrition, UK).
Discussion topics include:
- Defining muscle protein synthesis (MPS)
- Acute MPS and muscle hypertrophy: The relevance and uncertainty
- MPS is not just hypertrophy, but also remodelling and repair
- Training status and MPS
- Methods of measurement
- Methodological issues in research & how this should impact translation into practice
- Physiology and MPS
Key Paper(s) Discussed / Referred to:
- What is the relationship between the acute muscle protein synthesis response and changes in muscle mass?
- ARE NOT INTRACELLULAR HEAT AND NEURAL ELECTRICITY STRESSES THE CAUSE OF EXERCISE-INDUCED PROTEIN SYNTHESIS?
- A Review of Resistance Training-Induced Changes in Skeletal Muscle Protein Synthesis and Their Contribution to Hypertrophy
- The development of skeletal muscle hypertrophy through resistance training: the role of muscle damage and muscle protein synthesis
