Interesting that it demonstrated strength increases but not CSA differences in the trained limb while there was a CSA difference in the untrained limb.

And that carbs alone were enough to increase CSA in the trained limb.

My initial comment comparing this study with PWO studies was a little off because the snazzy PWO combos that worked also contained carbs. However, given that the LEU/Whey group gave strength increases and the CARB group got CSA increases supports the idea of a PRO/CARB combo.

Should also make you think hard about unilateral training with the uninjured limb when one has an injury.

Food for thought!
