Here is an article just published by Layne and I on the topic in the title. :)

Pretty short, so probably want a few more!

Hi Coach: Can you break that down in one easy paragraph? Please:)

The RDA for protein is 0.8 g/kg bodyweight, however this may not be sufficient for athletes looking to maximize skeletal
muscle protein synthesis (MPS) and muscle mass. The amount of protein source required to maximize MPS is likely dependent upon
its leucine content. Leucine is responsible for most of the anabolic effects of a meal and current research suggests that 3g (~0.05g/
kg bodyweight) of leucine is required to maximize this response. The MPS response to a mixed meal is only 3 hours long despite
producing elevations in amino acids for 5 hours, thus athletes maximizing MPS will require inducing this response multiple times
throughout the day. Consuming multiple meals per day containing 3g of leucine may be beneficial in maximizing MPS.

Yes, this is our abstract lol. ;)

first of all...Congrats to the both of you...huge honor...i feel like i gain a better understanding of this entire idea everytime it is presented to me...this was very well written. i will have to re-read it to phrase my question better...but could you go into the insulin following leucine aspect a bit more Gabe...maybe i just need to re-read it..but if you could maybe say it in a different way...sorry if it's a pain in the *** question, but this really interests me...mad props again

I'm sorry, but I don't quite understand your question?

Read it yesterday while lounging in the pool :)

It completely re-enforces what you guys have been promoting in the past couple of months, regarding a larger meal spacing with EAA's in between. Very cool!
