    The first article of this series introduced you to a recent quizzical finding that post-exercise myofibrillar protein synthesis (MPS) doesn’t predict muscle growth adaptations to subsequent resistance training(1). Obviously, the process of hypertrophying muscle cells involves increasing contractile protein content(2), but this is an intricate construction project. Conceptually, gross protein synthesis could be considered analogous to the arrival of building materials, in semi-assembled pieces, on the site of a shopping mall construction site. The protein is technically assembled/synthesized, but no one is going to go shopping until there are actual stores up and running. Incorporating this protein, in all the right places and proportions within functional hypertrophied muscle cells entails all the complexity of finalizing the plumbing, electrical, HVAC, roofing, landscaping, etc. that makes that shopping mall such a great temptation to spend too much money.
