Arms Assigned Interventions
Active Comparator: 1
nutritional supplement plus resistance exercise
Drug: nutritional supplementation
2 oral ingestions per study visit of protein supplement containing a total of 960 kilocalories: 132.8 kilocalories from protein, 412.8 kilocalories from carbohydrates, and 412.8 kilocalories from fat; 6 study visits over a 12-month period
Behavioral: exercise
resistance training on a duel leg press consisting of 3 sets of 8-12 repetitions; the first 5 study visits over a 12-month period
Active Comparator: 2
nutritional supplement only (resistance exercise will not be performed)
Drug: nutritional supplementation
2 oral ingestions per study visit of protein supplement containing a total of 960 kilocalories: 132.8 kilocalories from protein, 412.8 kilocalories from carbohydrates, and 412.8 kilocalories from fat; 6 study visits over a 12-month period
