Participants needed for study looking at the effect of body composition on muscle responses to exercise
Loughborough University is recruiting participants for a research study to investigate whether being overweight or obese weakens muscle growth responses to exercise, a factor that may increase the likelihood of developing metabolic diseases like Type 2 diabetes.
We are looking for healthy men who meet the following criteria:
- aged between 18-40 years
- body mass index (BMI) greater than 30kg/m2
- free from a history of heart disease and metabolic diseases
If you take part, you will be asked to attend two laboratory testing sessions (the first lasting three hours and the second lasting seven hours).
