* denotes a significant increase at Day 43.
† Denotes a significant increase for Group. Both supplement groups underwent significant increases in total creatine levels (p = 0.044). Resistance training increased total protein content (p = 0.038) as well as the protein content of Type I (p = 0.041) and Type IIA (p = 0.029) MHC.
