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 the way...I LOVE nowhere else will you find scientific backed conversation
The"Outwork" mindset changed my entire life, perhaps it can help you as well

Muscle Hypertrophy occurs independent of exercise intensity
