Summary of "The Association Between Whey Protein, Regional Fat Mass and Strength in Resistance-Trained Men: A Cross-Sectional Study."

The purpose of this study was to evaluate the association between whey protein supplementation, body composition and muscle strength, in resistance-trained individuals. Forty-nine healthy males, aged 18 to 35 years that were engaged in resistance training for at least one year, were assigned into two groups according to whey protein intake (Whey: n=26, 30.7 ± 7.4 yr, 75.8 ± 9.0 kg; WithoutWhey: n=23, 31.0 ± 7.4 yr, 77.9 ± 9.3 kg). Using a cross-sectional design, a morning assessment of body fat mass (FM) (by dual energy X-ray absorptiometry) and strength (using 1RM for bench press and back squat) was performed. Nutritional assessment was performed by 3-day food records. Regarding nutritional habits, differences between total energy intake (kcal) and estimated energy requirements (kcal) were observed. Results, from both raw data or controlling for energy intake, estimated energy requirements or achieved percentage of energy requirements, showed that whey protein supplementation was inversely correlated with whole-body FM (R=-0.367 (p=0.010); R=-0.317 (p=0.049); R=-0.380 (p=0.011); R=-0.321 (p=0.047), respectively), trunk FM (R=-0.396 (p=0.005), R=-0.367 (p=0.022), R=-0.423 (p=0.004), R=-0.369 (p=0.021), respectively) and android FM (R=-0.381 (p=0.007), R=-0.332 (p=0.039), R=-0.383 (p=0.010), R=-0.336 (p=0.036), respectively). No correlations were found between muscle strength outcomes and whey protein supplementation. The present data suggests that whey protein ingestion has a positive association with whole-body and regional (trunk and android) FM.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

The protein components of milk obtained from the whey.

The internal resistance of a material to moving some parts of it parallel to a fixed plane, in contrast to stretching (TENSILE STRENGTH) or compression (COMPRESSIVE STRENGTH). Ionic crystals are brittle because, when subjected to shear, ions of the same charge are brought next to each other, which causes repulsion.

A type of strength-building exercise program that requires the body muscle to exert a force against some form of resistance, such as weight, stretch bands, water, or immovable objects. Resistance exercise is a combination of static and dynamic contractions involving shortening and lengthening of skeletal muscles.

A major protein fraction of milk obtained from the WHEY.

Mechanism by which changes in neural activity are tightly associated with regional cortical HEMODYNAMICS and metabolism changes. The association is often inferred from NEUROIMAGING signals (e.g., fMRI; or NIR SPECTROSCOPY).
