Summary Intense exercise results in muscular inflammation. Molecular techniques were used to identify novel inflammatory proteins in human muscle. Males and females displayed different levels of exercise-induced inflammatory proteins. Interestingly, dairy protein supplements reduced these inflammatory proteins post-exercise. Increased dietary red meat consumption, with training, had no impact on muscle inflammation, although strength gain was improved.
