Scholarcy highlights

  • This study examined the effects of ingesting nutritional supplements designed to promote lean tissue accretion on body composition alterations during resistance training
  • Twenty-eight resistance-trained males blindly supplemented their diets with maltodextrin, Gainers Fuel® 1000, or Phosphagain™
  • Dual energy x-ray absorptiometry-determined body mass significantly increased in each group throughout the study with significantly greater gains observed in the GF and P groups
  • Lean tissue mass gain was significantly greater in the P group, while fat mass and percent body fat were significantly increased in the GF group
  • Results indicate that total body weight significantly increased in each group and that P supplementation resulted in significantly greater gains in lean tissue mass during resistance training
