Sports Nutrition Symposium 6.0
Thursday, February 2 @ 12 pm CT
Amino acids provide the building blocks for recovery and remodeling of important tissue proteins following endurance exercise. This remodeling is the foundation for most performance adaptations that occur with training including repair to certain organ tissues that experience damage during endurance exercise. Amino acids are also utilized as a fuel source. The amount of dietary protein required to replace losses, repair damaged tissue, and stimulate adaptation is dependent on several factors that are unique to each athlete and their training. This presentation will discuss how to determine specific protein needs of different endurance athletes and effectively provide recommendations for total amount, timing, and distribution.
