Default AMPK not activated in the fed state

AMPK is essentially the cells fuel guage and during energy depleting processes it is activated leading to a shutting down of energy consuming processes such as protein synthesis. STudies generally show an increase in AMPK activation even during resistance exercise. But these studies r usually done in the fasted state.

A recent study however found that AMPK was not increased in activation in a fed state

Interesting stuff!
