Notes for this study:
3g of HMB as free acid (1g taken 30 minutes prior to exercise, two 1g servings taken 30 minutes prior to lunch and dinner) over the course of one training day was able to increase the rate of muscular recovery (percieved) and reduce creatine kinase in serum relative to placebo; no other parameter was affected
