Effect of the supplementation with whey protein sweetened with S. rebaudiana on the incremental increase of the maximum load-carrying capacity in resistance-trained rats. Maximum load-carrying capacity (a) and its incremental increase (b) during the 8-weeks of the resistance training program. TC, trained control rats; TW, trained rats receiving whey protein; TWS, trained rats receiving whey protein sweetened with S. rebaudiana leaf extracts. n = 10. Data are presented as the mean ± S.E.M. *p ≤ 0.05 vs TC and #p ≤ 0.05 vs TW, ANOVA, Tukey’s post-hoc test
