Protein ingestion before sleep augments postexercise muscle protein synthesis during overnight recovery. It is unknown whether postexercise and presleep protein consumption modulates postprandial protein handling and myofibrillar protein synthetic responses the following morning. Sixteen healthy young ( 24 ± 1 yr ) men performed unilateral resistance-type exercise ( contralateral leg acting as a resting control ) at 2000. Participants ingested 20 g of protein immediately after exercise plus 60 g of protein presleep ( PRO group; n = 8 ) or equivalent boluses of carbohydrate ( CON; n = 8 ). The subsequent morning participants received primed, continuous infusions of l-[ring-2H5]phenylalanine and l-[1-13C]leucine combined with ingestion of ...
