Stuart Philips - Pubmed RE study points

This guys name brought up a selection of interesting studies from pubmed, summary points are...

Phillips Stuart[au] - The now famous low load high volume recruits more muscle motor units study - 3 Sets of an exercise stimulates more muscle protein synthesis than 1 set, but we already knew that from the earlier study done on 1,3,5 sets and P70s6K. - Exercising in a glycogen depleted state can increase the oxidation and turnover of protein during pro-longed high intensity exercise. - 20g of protein was enough to maximally stimulate post work-out MPS. However only 1 muscle group was exercised, this number will obviously go up as multiple muscle groups are usually exercised during a workout.
