Exercising before or after breakfast for skeletal muscle adaptation?

04 May 2017

The aim of the study is to understand whether exercising before or after breakfast is more beneficial for producing adaptations with skeletal muscle that allow a more efficient use of fats and carbohydrates for energy production (termed mitochondrial biogenesis). Participants will take part in six weeks of endurance exercise (cycling) training with pre- and post-training measures to understand skeletal muscle adaptations to endurance exercise.
