Whether you are an Olympic athlete or just going about your day-to-day life, feeding and using your muscles smartly can help you perform well and age healthily. At DCU, sports science researcher Dr Brendan Egan looks at how our muscles adapt to exercise and forms of training and nutrition support.
“People are always keen to know what foods can keep them healthy and performing well, and the science of nutrition and performance is growing quickly,” says Brendan. “Ultimately the work we do in the lab will translate into people eating more effectively for health, endurance and strength.”
