Understanding the basic mechanisms regulating skeletal muscle hypertrophy is essential to providing strategies for optimizing and maintaining skeletal muscle mass. This review focuses on the importance of mRNA translation in mediating acute increases in protein synthesis after resistance exercise as well as the anabolic response of muscle growth.
