Biomarkers associated with low, moderate, and high vastus lateralis muscle hypertrophy following 12 weeks of resistance training.
 

Author(s): Christopher B Mobley, Cody T Haun, Paul A Roberson, Petey W Mumford, Wesley C Kephart, Matthew A Romero, Shelby C Osburn, Christopher G Vann, Kaelin C Young, Darren T Beck, Jeffrey S Martin, Christopher M Lockwood, Michael D Roberts

Journal:

 

We sought to identify biomarkers which delineated individual hypertrophic responses to resistance training. Untrained, college-aged males engaged in full-body resistance training (3 d/wk) for 12 weeks. Body composition via dual x-ray absorptiometry (DXA), vastus lateralis (VL) thickness ...

The effects of unilateral and bilateral eccentric overload training on hypertrophy, muscle power and COD performance, and its determinants, in team sport players.
 

Author(s): Francisco Javier Núñez, Alfredo Santalla, Irene Carrasquila, Jose Antonio Asian, Jose Ignacio Reina, Luis Jesús Suarez-Arrones

Journal:

 

The study aimed to compare the chronic eccentric-overload training effects of unilateral (lateral lunge) vs bilateral (half-squat) using an inertial device, on hypertrophy and physical performance. Twenty-seven young team sports male players performed a 4 sets of 7 repetitions of ...

Blockade of activin type II receptors with a dual anti-ActRIIA/IIB antibody is critical to promote maximal skeletal muscle hypertrophy.
 

Author(s): Frederic Morvan, Jean-Michel Rondeau, Chao Zou, Giulia Minetti, Clemens Scheufler, Meike Scharenberg, Carsten Jacobi, Pascale Brebbia, Veronique Ritter, Gauthier Toussaint, Claudia Koelbing, Xavier Leber, Alain Schilb, Florian Witte, Sylvie Lehmann, Elke Koch, Sabine Geisse, David J Glass, Estelle Lach-Trifilieff

Journal: Proc. Natl. Acad. Sci. U.S.A.. 2017 11;114(47):12448-12453.

 

The TGF-β family ligands myostatin, GDF11, and activins are negative regulators of skeletal muscle mass, which have been reported to primarily signal via the ActRIIB receptor on skeletal muscle and thereby induce muscle wasting described as cachexia. Use of a soluble ActRIIB-Fc "trap," ...

Muscle memory and a new cellular model for muscle atrophy and hypertrophy.
 

Author(s): Kristian Gundersen

Journal: J. Exp. Biol.. 2016 Jan;219(Pt 2):235-42.

 

Memory is a process in which information is encoded, stored, and retrieved. For vertebrates, the modern view has been that it occurs only in the brain. This review describes a cellular memory in skeletal muscle in which hypertrophy is 'remembered' such that a fibre that has previously ...

The molecular basis for load-induced skeletal muscle hypertrophy.
 

Author(s): George R Marcotte, Daniel W D West, Keith Baar

Journal: Calcif. Tissue Int.. 2015 Mar;96(3):196-210.

 

In a mature (weight neutral) animal, an increase in muscle mass only occurs when the muscle is loaded sufficiently to cause an increase in myofibrillar protein balance. A tight relationship between muscle hypertrophy, acute increases in protein balance, and the activity of the mechanistic ...

Skeletal muscle hypertrophy after aerobic exercise training.
 

Author(s): Adam R Konopka, Matthew P Harber

Journal: Exerc Sport Sci Rev. 2014 Apr;42(2):53-61.

 

Current dogma suggests that aerobic exercise training has minimal effects on skeletal muscle size. We and others have demonstrated that aerobic exercise acutely and chronically alters protein metabolism and induces skeletal muscle hypertrophy. These findings promote an antithesis ...
