In Episode #137 I sit down with scientist Hamilton Roschel to discuss his recent study investigating whether the source of protein, animal or plant, affects muscle strength and growth in young healthy adults performing resistance training.
Specifically we discuss:
•Why this study was performed
•What the study methodology was
•What makes this study unique
•What the hypothesis was going into the study
•The study results and what we can and cannot say
•Supplements for improving performance (e.g creatine and beta-alanine)
