Joe Weider's Muscle & Fitness;Dec2001, Vol. 62 Issue 12, p64
Deals with a study that examined the importance of taking essential amino acid (EAA) cocktail both before and after exercise to improve the anabolic response to resistance exercise. Effect of EAA cocktail ingestion on muscle protein synthesis; Ingredients that can be added to the EAA cocktail to increase its potency.
