Nutrition Supplements May Not Improve Exercise Performance But Can Reduce Muscle Damage E-mail
Written by Administrator   
dietary_supplementsA new study in The Journal of Strength and Conditioning Research suggests that drinking a carbohydrate and protein supplement prior to and during exercise does not improve exercise performance. However, subjects who consumed the supplement did experience significantly reduced muscle damage compared to control subjects.

The Journal of Strength and Conditioning Research study examined the effects of consuming a carbohydrate and protein supplement prior to, during, and following an intense resistance exercise workout. The results indicate that a carbohydrate and protein supplement can significantly reduce muscle damage during acute bouts of resistance exercise, potentially allowing athletes to participate in their next high-intensity exercise bout in a shorter period of time. This finding can also apply to novice lifters and other individuals who regularly engage in resistance training.

The study authors are careful to note that although the supplement did not appear to influence exercise performance, previous studies were based on exercise programs targeting one main group of muscles, while the exercise program in this study incorporated the entire body.
