132. Protein Timing: Is There an Anabolic Window of Opportunity?

Protein Timing Is There an Anabolic Window of Opportunity

This presentation will discuss the theory of a post-workout "anabolic window of opportunity" whereby the consumption of protein within one hour after exercise is necessary to maximize muscular adaptations.

This presentation will discuss the theory of a post-workout "anabolic window of opportunity" whereby the consumption of protein within one hour after exercise is necessary to maximize muscular adaptations. A thorough discussion of the literature will provide context to these claims, and present alternative evidence of a "peri-workout anabolic window" whereby the need for post-exercise protein intake ultimately depends on the proximity of the pre-workout meal. Moreover, relevance of the benefits of protein timing will be explored with respect to specific populations and goals. This is an evidence-based presentation that will draw heavily on research findings from Brad's lab as well as those of others.
