Research Update: HMB Improves Aerobic Performance

Researchers from the University of Sherbrooke examined the effects of five-week HMB supplementation during a three times per week interval training regime.  Body composition and maximum oxygen consumption were measured in these athletes while they were taking part in the interval training. The group of athletes was divided into two treatements: placebo or 3 grams of HMB daily.  Subjects in the HMB supplementation group had a dramatically improved VO2 max.  Furthermore, the HMB supplemented group had an overall loss in body fat and an overall gain in lean tissue when compared to the placebo supplemented subjects.
