ATP Supplement May Boost Lower Body Resistance Training

People looking to maximize their workouts may want to consider taking a supplement of adenosine-triphosphate (ATP). A recent study suggests that taking an ATP supplement may improve lower body resistance training performance and energy expenditure.


Participants in the study included 11 recreationally trained men with an average age of 27.5. They were given either a single 400 mg dose of ATP or a placebo 30 minutes before completing four sets of half-squats until acute muscle exhaustion.


The researchers noted at the ATP group had lifted significantly higher total weight when compared with the placebo. They also had significantly faster heart rate and greater oxygen consumption during exercise. There were no significant differences in lactate and blood pressure between the two groups.


Researchers from São Paulo State University led the study. It was published online ahead of print on October 16, 2017, in the Journal of Strength & Conditioning Research.


Because it is an energy source, ATP is abundant in a wide range of foods, including meat, fish, nuts, fruits and vegetables. If you want to make sure you’re getting the right amount, you can also take it in supplement form.
