Example text

Despite the lack of consensus about ingestion of a high-carbohydrate diet or ingestion of carbohydrate before weightlifting performance, it is clear that skeletal muscle carbohydrate sources facilitate overall resistance exercise performance by acting as the primary fuel source during this type of exercise. This is especially imperative over the course of an entire weight training session in which many individual muscles or muscle groups are worked to the point of fatigue (including possible glycogen depletion), which results in an associated prolonged postexercise period of energy-consuming muscle recovery.

A single bout of resistance exercise also stimulates gene expression related to protein synthesis (Hulmi et al. 2009). Performing a number of sprints or successive bouts of intense exercise promoted protein degradation and oxidation (De Feo et al. 2003). Moreover, performing exercise bouts in glycogen-depleted conditions promoted a greater degradation and utilization of protein as a metabolic fuel (Wagenmakers 1998). While carbohydrate remains the primary fuel needed for high-intensity exercise, protein can serve as a fuel source during high-intensity, intermittent, and prolonged exercise bouts.

Gelatin (collagen) protein and wheat protein are relatively poor-quality sources. Meat and fish sources are considered moderately high-quality sources of protein. Soy, egg, milk, whey, and bovine colostrum sources are classified as high-quality protein. 08 – Inexpensive but poor-quality protein popular as a nutritional supplement in the 1970s and 1980s. Gelatin is still found in some liquid protein supplements. 5 Wheat protein has a relatively poor protein quality. However, wheat serves as the starting material for glutamine peptides, which are protein hydrolysates that contain high amounts of glutamine.
