Concurrent Training For Endurance and Strength Does Not Interfere With Protein Synthesis

Most sports require a combination of endurance and strength. Professional athletes, for example, perform weight-training exercises to increase muscle mass, and aerobics to decrease fat. Conventional wisdom is that aerobics interfere with strength and muscle mass development. A study from the University of São Paulo in Brazil showed that simultaneously training for strength and endurance did not alter gene activity associated with muscle hypertrophy. However, training for strength resulted in greater changes in muscle mass than performing interval training or endurance training. (Journal Strength Conditioning Research, 28:3215-3223, 2014)
