Protein/amino acid supplementation and resistance training: A research update

Stephen Bird

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


Strength and power athletes often employ protein and/or amino acid supplementation as part of their training schedule. This brief review provides a research update on the digestive properties of protein and explores the anabolic potential of protein/amino acid supplementation in enhancing the muscular adaptations to resistance training (i.e., increased protein accretion and strength expression). Practical recommendations for protein/amino acid supplementation are provided at the conclusion of this paper.
