    Muscle atrophy happens when they muscles are said to waste away due to lack of muscle-strengthening activities. Sometimes, vigorous exercises can damage the muscle cells and it would require some time to heal. Individuals who engage in sporting activities seek performance-enhancing substances to ensure their muscles perform as expected.

    Athletes are required to consume enough calories [that ensures a continual supply of glucose] with a diet that contains close to 2 grams of protein per kilogram of their body weight in order to have enough energy and protein to build the muscles.
