Research Sample Needed
- 60 healthy, active men and women.
- Between the ages of 18 – 39 years of age.
- Participants will be healthy and free of disease as determined by evaluation of a medical history
- All participants will be required to abstain from taking any additional forms of nutritional supplementation deemed to be ergogenic or that will impact resistance training adaptations (pre-workouts, creatine, beta-alanine, etc.) for four weeks prior to beginning this study and for the entire duration of the study.
- Participants who are determined to not be weight stable defined as pre-study and visit 1 body mass levels deviating by 3% or more.
- Currently being treated for or diagnosed with a cardiac, respiratory, circulatory, musculoskeletal, metabolic, immune, autoimmune, psychiatric, hematological, neurological or endocrinological disorder or disease.
- Body mass index (BMI) >27 kg/m2. Individuals with a BMI > 27 kg/m2, but a body fat % < 25% fat will be accepted into the study.
- Previous injury or illness that would prevent individuals from appropriately completing all exercise lifts.
- Participants who are not able to fit onto the DEXA table will not be able to participate in the research due to size restrictions of the equipment. This typically includes individuals exceeding 400 lbs or those greater than 6’4”.
- Individuals with < 12 months of structured resistance training experience will be excluded from the study.
- Males whose maximal relative upper body strength is below 1.0 and females whose maximal relative upper body strength is below 0.75 will be excluded.
- Males whose maximal relative lower body strength is below 1.5 will be excluded and females whose maximal relative upper body strength is below 1.25 will be excluded.
- Pregnant women, women trying to become pregnant, or nursing women.
- Currently participating in another research study with an investigational product or have been in another research study in the past 30 days.
