It’s been known that if you want to get a ripped body, and bulk up you will need to put in the time at the gym, and stick to a strict diet of food intake and supplements. Some body builders and athletes even cheat with synthetic steroids.
According to a study, published in the September issue of the respected FASEB Journal the way people workout could dramatically change forever.
Cheating and muscle growth may be linked together without the hard work and dedication according to the new study done by scientists in Australia.
The research team believes they have found one of the molecular keys to a protein that promotes weight and muscle mass gain, without any physical activity.
The study used mice to discover that blocking the function of Grb10 – nicknamed the ‘Hulk’ protein – while mice were in the womb, they were considerably stronger and more muscular at birth than normal mice.
The results suggested that in the future it may be possible to alter muscle growth and help people heal faster, as the processes involved in muscle regeneration and repair are similar to those for the initial formation of muscle.
Take heed however “Don’t turn in your gym membership just yet,” said Gerald Weissmann, M.D., Editor-in-Chief of The FASEB Journal.
