Table 1 Changes scores from pre-value in maximal voluntary isometric contraction (MVC) torque 1, 2, 3, 5 days after eccentric contractions in Whey, HMB + Whey, and HMB

From: Effects of combined β-hydroxy-β-methylbutyrate (HMB) and whey protein ingestion on symptoms of eccentric exercise-induced muscle damage
