T1 and T2 squat and isometric peak torque values. No main time effect or group*time interaction was observed for 1RM squat (panel a). A main time effect was observed for isometric peak torque (panel d), and dependent t-tests revealed a significant decrease in the variable in the CHO group (p ≤ 0.001), while there was no decrease in the BCAA-CHO group (p = 0.08). Individual responses are plotted for squats (panel b and c) and isometric torque (panel e and f). Abbreviations: BCAA-CHO, branched-chain amino acid and carbohydrate-supplemented group; CHO, carbohydrate only-supplemented group
