Purpose Due to the mechanistic role of myostatin and follistatin in modulating muscle mass, shifts in the follistatin to myostatin ratio (F: M) may help explain changes in muscular size in response to resistance training (RT). The present study examined whether differential responses in follistatin and myostatin occur based on the amount of active musculature in a RT program in middle-aged men. Methods Forty middle-aged men (age= 46.5±3.1 years) were randomly assigned to 1 of 4 groups, upper-body RT (UB; n= 10), lower-body RT (LB; …
