View Full Version : Pre-workout consumption more beneficial

Here's an outtake from the study that proved pre-workout consumption of aminos is better than post-workout. Link to study is below....

This study was designed to determine whether the response of muscle protein metabolism to an EAC solution was different if consumed immediately before resistance exercise rather than immediately after resistance exercise. Ingestion of EAC changed net muscle protein balance from negative values, i.e., net release, to positive net uptake, in both trials. However, the total response to the consumption of EAC immediately before exercise was greater than the response when EAC was consumed immediately after exercise. Furthermore, it appears that the change from a catabolic state in the muscle to an anabolic state was primarily due to an increase in muscle protein synthesis.

Good info. That study is one tough bastard to read though. Very technical. But the result of the study is beneficial to those of us that work out and take sups. Thanks man.
