Participation in a resistance training program requires proper nutrition timing to gain the results desired. The purpose of this research is to determine if there are strength gain differences in women when the timing of consuming a BCAA plus carbohydrate supplement is manipulated. The study will consist of a four week training program. Subjects will meet for three sessions per week and consist of 10-20 strength trained women. Subjects will be randomly assigned to one of three groups. One group consumed the BCAA-CHO supplement during exercise, one group consumed the BCAA-CHO supplement immediately after exercise and the other group consumed a placebo. Each session will consist of a five minute warm up followed by a periodized strength training program. The three groups will be compared to determine if there is a difference in strength and muscle hypertrophy when the ingestion time of BCAA-CHO differs.
