  1. Pre- and post-study.
  2. 1All values are averages ± SEM; n = 9 for placebo, n = 9 for whey, n = 10 for soy.
  3. 2 Pre = baseline, prior to exercise and supplementation; post = end of 12 weeks.
  4. 3 Only the P value for pre versus post, with diet groups combined are presented, since diet effects were not significant and there was no interaction between diet and time (pre versus post).
  5. ab Values with a common superscript are not significantly different, at baseline (P < 0.05).
  6. 4NS, P > 0.0.
