Palabras clave: Ingesta Protéica, Masa músculo esquelético, Hipertrofia


La masa de músculo esquelético es crítica para la práctica de deporte y en muchas condiciones patológicas. La combinación de ingesta proteica y ejercicio de resistencia es la estrategia más eficiente para promover la hipertrofia de músculo esquelético y el remodelado. Es esencial tener en consideración el estado nutricional y la intensidad del entrenamiento para lograr mantener o ganar masa muscular.


Skeletal muscle mass is critical for sport performance and in many pathological conditions. The combination of protein intake and resistance exercise is the most efficient strategy to promote skeletal muscle hypertrophy and remodeling. It is also essential to take the nutritional status and the exercise training load into consideration when looking for maintenance or gain of skeletal muscle mass.
