Sample text

In order to blunt that catabolism and prevent unnecessary muscle loss during and right after training, a post-workout bolus of carbohydrate and protein has been shown effective, more effective than protein alone. - Glycogen Repletion Not only does glycogen provide the main source of energy for intense and voluminous weight training, it has other beneficial effects as well. If glycogen is not repleted post-training, chronically low glycogen stores may result. Such low levels will make the hardest forms of training almost impossible, and these are the ones that grow the most muscle (and save the most on a fat loss phase).

Thus, chronically low levels of glycogen can actually blunt muscle growth simply by being low, even if training intensity is somehow unaffected. The hormonal and intracellular regulatory environments of the post workout window (especially after very hard workouts) enhance the sensitivity of muscle (that which has just been trained) to the effects of insulin, glucose uptake, and glycogen synthesis. Through this synergistic effect, carbs consumed after training are much more likely to be incorporated as glycogen in the just-trained muscles than at rest, and thus also less likely to go to other stores (such as fat tissue, for example).

Low GI carbs for all meals and over multiple weeks (think fruit loops for every meal), higher bodyfat levels and lower levels of muscularity result. Because these findings also fall in line with theoretical predictions quite well, some tentative recommendations can be drawn. Because high glycemic carbohydrates replete glycogen more effectively, and also because they cause a more profound insulin spike (and are digested rapidly to be available in the blood right after training), they should likely be consumed during and right after training.
