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 >29.9 kg/m2. Males with a body mass index greater than 29.9 kg/m2, but a body fat percentage less than 27.5% fat will be accepted into the study. Females with a body mass index greater than 29.9 kg/m2, but a body fat percentage less than 32.5% fat will be accepted into the study. The average body mass index for the entire study cohort will be less than 27.5 kg/m2. As such, an ongoing calculation of the recruited cohort's mean body mass index will be maintained and people will only be randomized into the study if the average cohort body mass index value does not exceed 27.5 kg/m2
- 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 < 3 months of structured resistance training, aerobic training, or team sport participation experience will be excluded from the study
- 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.
