Notes for this study:
In this crossover study eight men supplemented 0, 1, and 2 g of l-carnitine l-tartrate daily for three weeks in random order with a three week washout period between each regimen. At the end of each regimen, the men performed five sets of 15 to 20 reps of back squats at 50% of 1RM. Perceived muscle soreness, hand grip strength, and blood was tested at 24, 48, and 72 hours post-exercise.
