Notes for this study:
In a 7-week randomized, double-blind, placebo-controlled trial, baseline magnesium intake was estimated and participants were given either enough magnesium to bring their intake to 8 mg/kg of body weight, or took placebo during a strength training program. The magnesium group saw a greater increase in quadriceps torque, torque/body weight, and torque/lean body mass.

*A previous version of this entry accidentally mistook "T" to mean testosterone, when instead it stood for torque. The error has been corrected.
