because of C depletion during workout?
does this sound familiar?
timber could eat a bucket of shit and it would help
I dont know about depletion of vit C but heavy exercise definately increases free radicals. 1000mg of vit C wouldn't go amiss IMO.
i dont mean complete depletion
just take 3000mg in the morning and dont worry about it, man you guys waste so much energy on shit that isnt going to make a real difference.
was in reference to pur's comment
popping a gram after a workout takes very little energy. im just looking for corroboration
Basically you have an anti-oxidant scavenger system in your body. When free radicals are created the system mops them up. However in some cases the scavenger system can become depleted and the radicals can cause damage.
Lifting weights increases the amount of free radicals, so it would make sense to take 1g vit c after a workout.
I think he takes, or was taking a pretty big dose pwo...6000 mg or something.
Lyle Mcd has posted some research about a few grams pre workout lowering cortisol levels.
pointless. you're just making expensive urine.
Stop trying to make this so complicated. Eat, lift, sleep, repeat.
Thumbs up for Vit. C post workout.
I take a gram or so post workout.
there is a lot info supporting the benefits of high-dose vitamin c
eat big, lift big
whats the goddamn point of this forum then? lets delete all the threads and just put one sticky that says eat, lift, sleep
Too much overanalyzing.
A 500mg capsule of Vit. C. PWO isn't going to make you huge and broly, or make up for a shitty ass day of training.
oh i really thought it would
it would appear that way
yes, its completely evident in all my posts
