Table 2 Comparison of the total number of repetition for acute resistance exercise at pre and post-intevention

From: Chronic capsiate supplementation increases fat-free mass and upper body strength but not the inflammatory response to resistance exercise in young untrained men: a randomized, placebo-controlled and double-blind study
