Intense training triggers the breakdown of muscle protein. When you workout, your body reacts to the stressors placed upon it by exercise. It’s important that we recover to get the best results according to our goals. When we recover, we come back to a better stronger version of ourselves.
Consuming an adequate amount of protein after a workout gives your body the amino acids it needs to repair and rebuild these proteins. It also gives you the building blocks required to build new muscle tissue. Cortisol, the stress hormone releases to meet energy demands. Cortisol can break down muscle tissue and begin to use it as fuel, exactly what we DON’T WANT.
Your body’s glycogen stores are used as fuel during exercise, and consuming carbs after your workout helps replenish them. insulin secretion, which promotes glycogen synthesis, is better stimulated when carbs and protein are consumed at the same time. Therefore, consuming both carbs and protein after exercise can maximize protein and glycogen synthesis.
Your body’s ability to rebuild glycogen and protein is enhanced after you exercise. This means it’s much more advantageous to consume your post-workout nutrition immediately after training. This is an important step in the ability to fight off catabolic stressors created from training. Shortly after training, we are in a state to rebuild and repair, this is when the super-compensation of recovery happens to create bigger and stronger versions of ourselves.
Continuous under-recovered training reduces our Adaptability to stress and physical stimuli and stress levels remain high. Conditions are unfavorable for proper muscular and neural adaptations. This can lead to mental and physical fatigue, compromised immune system.
Don’t take for granted proper post-workout nutrition. Increased recovery leads to better training sessions down the road, creating an optimal environment for continuously improved performance!
