Participants Wanted for Exercise Study

Post by Andy Terry » 25 Jun 2018 18:22

I was involved in this study earlier this year and they need a few more volunteers.

Purpose: We are investigating how lifelong exercise preserves the capacity to build muscle in master athletes compared with non-exercising young and older individuals.

We are seeking Master Endurance Athletes defined as men over 60, training at least twice a week for 20 years or more. Healthy, non-diabetic, non-smokers only.

You will undergo:
- 4 testing visits (over a 1 week period) at the School of Sport, Exercise & Rehabilitation Sciences at the University of Birmingham School of Sport, Exercise and Rehabilitation Sciences
- Detailed assessment of body composition (amount of fat and muscle)
- Muscle biopsies to determine rates of muscle protein synthesis

You will receive remuneration for participation

For more information, please contact James McKendry: Jxm965@student.bham.ac.uk or 07879332731
