This review examines the literature on protein requirements for strength training and provides practical suggestions with regards to the amount and timing of protein intake. By analyzing the effects of resistance exercise on protein metabolism, excessively high protein requirements for strength training may be expelled. Furthermore, an examination intothereliability of protein turnover measurement models, including the nitrogen balance method and tracer methods, underlines thelackofscientificevidence for the habitual high protein intake currently established within those who undertake strength training.
