How recycling capacity in muscles is enhanced by resistance training

Resistance training, a form of exercise that forces your skeletal muscles to contract, enhances the recycling capacity in muscles, finds a recent study. Autophagy is a major catabolic route in cells responsible for the clearance of proteins and organelles. Pathological levels of autophagy are associated with muscle wasting, but physiological levels are important for cellular recycling. In the present study, ... Read More »
