9:00am-10:15am - Resistance training and muscle hypertrophy: The role of nutrition in the myogenic activation of satellite cells - Darryn S. Willoughby, Ph.D., FACSM, FISSN, CSCS. Muscle hypertrophy is governed by two primary processes, one which involves an increase in protein synthesis by pre-existing myonuclei and the other involving the myogenic activation of satellite cells that increases myonuclear content. During periods of elevated muscle hypertrophy with resistance training, pre-existing myonuclear number may not be sufficient to facilitate hypertrophic demands; therefore, myonucleation from satellite cell activation can occur. Research has shown that nutritional supplementation, such as with whey protein and creatine, can exacerbate resistance training-induced satellite cell activation.
10:30am-11:45am - Insulin Fatness, Glycemic Spikes, and Low Carb Training: Exploding Carb Fairy Tales - Anthony Almada, MSc. FISSN - Mr Almada will give you the latest on the role of carbohydrates and insulin regulation. Also, he'll expound on its role in active individuals. How much do you need? Are there 'good' carbs and 'bad' carbs? What about the glycemic index? Glycemic load? Get ready for a sugarful of info!
Lunch 11:45am-1:00pm - on your own
1:00pm-2:15pm - Nutrient Timing - Rob Wildman PhD RD FISSN - Dr Wildman will edify you on what to eat pre, during and post training. How much protein do you need? Are carbs needed post workout? Which type of protein and carb should you consume? Also, is fat part of the nutrient timing strategy? Listen to Dr Wildman and time will be on your side.
2:30pm-3:45pm - Protein and Amino Acids - Lem Taylor PhD FISSN - Milk, casein, whey, beef, soy, rice, and other proteins oh my! Dr Taylor will give you the scoop on how different proteins affect muscle protein synthesis, body composition, and exercise capacity.
