Workout the Better! The Last Rep, Pound Your Post-Workout Drink right
Post-Workout Nutrition Supports:
Less muscle soreness
Increased ability to build muscle
Improved immune function
Improved bone mass
Improved ability to utilize body fat
These benefits seem to work for virtually everyone, regardless of
gender or age.
Why are workout and post-workout nutrition so important?
When we work out intensely, we damage tissues at the micro level, and we use
up our body's fuel.
This is what ultimately makes us stronger, leaner, fitter, and more
muscular, but in the short term, it requires serious repair.
Repair and rebuilding always occur through the breakdown of old, damaged
proteins (aka protein breakdown) and the construction of new ones (aka
protein synthesis), which is a process known collectively as protein
Muscle protein synthesis is increased slightly (or unchanged) after
resistance workouts, while protein breakdown increases dramatically. We’re
doing a lot more breaking-down than building-up, this is why a Post-Workout
Drink helps so much.
The relationship between these two parameters (rate of muscle protein
synthesis and muscle protein breakdown) represents your metabolic basis for
Muscle hypertrophy occurs when a positive protein balance can be
established during recovery, so in other words when we make sure we have
enough raw materials available for protein synthesis to occur so that it
does not lag behind protein breakdown.
This is especially difficult with endurance athletes as protein synthesis
drops and protein breakdown goes up.
Studies show that this trend can be reversed, specifically, protein
synthesis is stimulated, and protein breakdown is suppressed when you
consume the right type of nutrients after exercise.
Protein is not the only concern, however. During exercise sessions, stored
carbohydrates can be substantially depleted as well.
Thus, during the post-workout period, we require protein and carbohydrates.
The raw materials we give our body through the consumption of food &
supplements before, during, and post-workout periods are critical to
creating the metabolic environment our bodies desire.
When to take your Post-Workout Powder:
Many refer to this workout and post-workout phenomenon as “the window of
During this window, your muscles are primed to accept nutrients that can
stimulate muscle repair, muscle growth, and muscle strength.
This window opens immediately after your workout and starts to close
quickly. Research suggests that while protein synthesis persists for at
least 48 hours after exercise, it’s most important to get post-workout
nutrition immediately, and within 30 minutes afterward.
If you feed your body properly while this window is open, you’ll get the
benefits you desire.
If you don’t provide adequate post-exercise nutrition fast enough, even if
you delay by only a couple of hours, you decrease muscle glycogen storage
and protein synthesis.
As soon as you drop that last dumbbell or whatever your sporting event, you
should be consuming some post-workout nutrition. Workout Hard, then take
your Post-Workout Powder Immediately after.
