Protein synthesis is the most important and fundamental rule to creating muscle mass and growing. But what is it ?. Protein synthesis is a process in every living thing from ants to humans and it is fundamental to learn so you can practically apply these lessons for greater output and end result in the gym. Enough said let's get into it.
Protein is the building block of muscles. Muscle protein synthesis is a naturally occurring process in which protein is produced to repair muscle damage caused by intense exercise. It is an opposing force to muscle protein breakdown (MPB) in which protein is lost as a result of exercise.
MPS can be enhanced by increasing your protein intake immediately following exercise. The amino acids derived from protein will then be shuttled to your muscles, replacing any lost to exercise. Learning how to stimulate MPS through exercise and diet can help accelerate muscle growth, improve recovery and athletic performance, and increase overall endurance.
