A PhD student at Liverpool John Moores University is recruiting male athletes to participate in a novel sport science/nutrition research study. Please contact the researchers directly for more information or to volunteer.
This research will be investigating the role of carbohydrate and how it can regulate the molecular response to exercise training. In return for their participation, subjects will receive all physiological testing data (i.e. VO2max, peak power output etc) and will have access to experienced sport physiologists/nutritionists to ask any questions they may have.
You will be eligible to take part in this study if you are:
- Male aged 18-35
- Physically active and perform structured exercise 3 times per week
- Free from metabolic diseases such as type II diabetes or insulin resistance
- Free from any known food allergies
Should you wish to take part, you will be required to visit the exercise physiology labs in the Tom Reilly Building at LJMU on 7 separate occasions for an assessment of fitness and to complete a series of cycling protocols under three different dietary conditions. Full details of the study can be found in the participant information sheet attached. The study will also involve muscle biopsies, whereby all the necessary information has been added to the attached information sheet.
Please feel free to read this information at your leisure and should you wish to take part, or if you have any further questions, please do not hesitate to contact me M.Hearris@2014.ljmu.ac.uk or Julien J.B.Louis@ljmu.ac.uk
Thank you in advance for any interest.
Best Wishes, Mark Hearris
