Ok here’s my highly considered opinion on the findings.

Given that Leucine and whey will support plasma aminos and trigger protein synthesis, you would expect growth to occur wherever protein synthesis occurs i.e. all muscle. That was supported by these results. Would have been interesting to see if CSA was affected in other areas of the body.

Given that the carbs will cause an insulin spike and result in available nutrients being transported to particular cells that require them, you would expect a more site specific result. That was precisely what was recorded.

I think it lends great support to the current PWO nutrition theory.

Would also have been interesting to see if a combination of the SUPP and PL drinks outperformed the individual results.
