Special Issue "Recent Perspectives on the Role of Dietary Protein for Resistance Exercise Training"
Deadline for manuscript submissions: closed (30 October 2021).
Given the continued rise in popularity for dietary protein and its role in resistance exercise training, a concise and improved understanding of the mechanisms that are modulated by dietary protein and its potential in facilitating an adaptive physiological response to said training is of pivotal importance. With skeletal muscle mass declining with age, formulating better ways to combat muscle loss with dietary protein and resistance exercise training is warranted.
Dietary protein plays a pivotal role in the recovery process following resistance exercise training. Thus, skeletal muscle mass is modulated by a diverse range of factors. These include nutrient timing, various resistance training modalities, physiological mechanisms such as acute changes in the release of anabolic and catabolic hormones, anabolic and catabolic signaling pathways, muscle protein synthesis and breakdown.
This Special Issue will collate recent high-quality research in the field of dietary protein and resistance exercise training, focusing on the investigation of dietary protein and the role(s) it plays in the adaptive response to resistance exercise training. These topics may include nutrient sensing. Both original research articles and reviews are welcome.

Manuscripts can be submitted until the deadline. All papers will be peer-reviewed. Accepted papers will be published continuously in the journal (as soon as accepted) and will be listed together on the special issue website. Research articles, review articles as well as short communications are invited. For planned papers, a title and short abstract (about 100 words) can be sent to the Editorial Office for announcement on this website.
Submitted manuscripts should not have been published previously, nor be under consideration for publication elsewhere (except conference proceedings papers). All manuscripts are thoroughly refereed through a single-blind peer-review process. A guide for authors and other relevant information for submission of manuscripts is available on the Instructions for Authors page. Nutrients is an international peer-reviewed open access monthly journal published by MDPI.
Please visit the Instructions for Authors page before submitting a manuscript. The Article Processing Charge (APC) for publication in this open access journal is 2400 CHF (Swiss Francs). Submitted papers should be well formatted and use good English. Authors may use MDPI's English editing service prior to publication or during author revisions.
