In the current scenario, in which an elevated number of COVID-19 survivors present with severe physical deconditioning, exercise intolerance, persistent symptoms, and other post-acute consequences, effective rehabilitation strategies are of utmost relevance. In this study, we report for the first time the effect of home-based exercise training (HBE...

Higher daily protein intake, with an emphasis on leucine content, is thought to mitigate age-related anabolic resistance, potentially counteracting age-related morphological and functional declines. The present study investigated potential associations between total daily leucine intake and dependent variables, including quadriceps muscle cross-sec...

Purpose: We report for the first time the effect of exercise training in a survivor patient from critical COVID-19 illness. Methods: A 67-yr-old woman who had critical COVID-19 disease underwent a 10-wk home-based exercise training aimed at recovering her overall physical condition. Before and after the intervention, we assessed cardiopulmonary par...

Background Strength and muscle mass are predictors of relevant clinical outcomes in critically ill patients, but in hospitalized patients with COVID-19, it remains to be determined. In this prospective observational study, we investigated whether muscle strength or muscle mass are predictive of hospital length of stay (LOS) in patients with moderat...

Creatine has been considered an effective ergogenic aid for several decades; it can help athletes engaged in a variety of sports and obtain performance gains. Creatine supplementation increases muscle creatine stores; several factors have been identified that may modify the intramuscular increase and subsequent performance benefits, including basel...

Background Acute protein turnover studies suggest lower anabolic response after ingestion of plant vs. animal proteins. However, the effects of an exclusively plant-based protein diet on resistance training-induced adaptations are under investigation. Objective To investigate the effects of dietary protein source [exclusively plant-based vs. mixed...

Importance: Strength and muscle mass are predictors of relevant clinical outcomes in critically ill patients, but in hospitalized patients with COVID-19 remains to be determined. Objective: To investigate whether muscle strength or muscle mass are predictive of hospital length of stay (LOS) in patients with moderate to severe COVID-19. Design: Pros...
Article
To test whether high insulin influence the transport of β-alanine into skeletal muscle at either saturating or sub-saturating β-alanine concentrations, we conducted two studies whereby β-alanine and insulin concentrations were controlled. 1) 12 men received supraphysiological amounts of β-alanine intravenously (0.11g·kg·min ⁻¹ for 150min) along wit...
