Backyard Revolution

by Ssregina Regina (2019-02-21)

Conferences generally have several days of one Backyard Revolution Review hour seminars (called "sessions") where researchers present their findings. Next there is often a big room filled with what are called "poster sessions." Poster sessions are, as the name implies, a large poster that sums up some research project. People will then come by and have a one on one conversation with the author of the poster and ask questions or make comments. Some conferences can have a room with hundreds of posters. It's a great way to view a large amount of research in a short amount of time. Finally, most conferences will have an exhibit hall where the sponsors of the conference and other companies have booths where people can check out what they are about. This conference had supplement companies, manufacturers, etc. in the exhibit hall. That's the basic breakdown of most scientific conferences. The 'meat' of a conference is the seminars and the reason for attending such shows. It's the place to get the very latest research on a topic of interest. What follows is a synopsis of some of the research presented in the sessions and posters I thought would be of interest to readers. Sessions: "Effects of protein and carbohydrate on anabolic responses to resistance training" by Dr. Paul Cribb
