A single dose of PEAK ATP® supplementation was shown to improve lower body resistance training performance and energy expenditure in trained males.
The goal of this study was to examine the acute effect of ATP supplementation on performance and physiological responses during resistance exercise in trained male athletes. A randomized, double blind study with 11 trained male subjects were given placebo or ATP supplement (400 mg/day). Each subject completed 3 experimental trials testing half-squat and muscular failure with a load. Blood lactate, oxygen consumption, heart rate and blood pressure were all collected and analyzed. The study concluded that an acute dose of ATP supplementation improved performance, oxygen consumption and energy expenditure during lower body resistance exercise in trained males. This study suggests that supplementing with ATP prior to a fatiguing, high volume lower body training session can enhance total weight lifted.Frietas et al.
