He told me you don't have to have satelite cell activation for newbies; but for monsters like you guys, it is likely required.

AKT I am familiar with and research in my lab. It is an upstream target of the mTOR pathway, which can increase muscle protein synthesis. Appears to be stimulated by insulin and exercise/growth factors. My research so far has not shown much evidence for leu working through this pathway to stimulate mTOR. But I digress...
what about the elderly? don't satellite cells play a role in overload-induced hypertrophy? perhaps we don't have to provide a traditional overload to help fight sarcopenia...i think i might be making this way to simplistic...hmm....by the way...I LOVE ABCBODYBUILDING.com nowhere else will you find scientific backed conversation

Muscle Hypertrophy occurs independent of exercise intensity
