  1. Demonstrates performance repetitions and muscle soreness data relative to dietary interventions. Performance based on total repetitions across 3 sets. Global soreness based on average across 8 anatomical locations (N). All data are presented as M ± SD. ***significantly different from T1 for PROMOD only (p = 0.006)
