Athletes often perceive their protein 'requirements' to be higher and recommendations have been made to increase protein intake. In this presentation, I will review the evidence that supports a greater protein intake to aid in optimizing adaptation to exercise. Both endurance and resistance athletes can, it will be argued, benefit from higher than recommended protein intakes. I will also explore the role of protein quality and protein timing in terms of stimulating an adaptive advantage to exercise training.
