so don't drink protein shakes 30 minutes before lifting? what is good to have ?
Ive seen other studies that say opposite
so .... what do they suggest you eat before a workout? just carbs?
I can't imagine its a good thing to be going into a workout with low free amino acids in your blood.
Does all the protein from earlier just leave your blood?
STS = strength training session
T = testosterone
I = insulin
FFA = free-fatty acid
I said low, not all. As in you probably ate 3-4 hours before your workout or you will at least hit that mark by the time your workout is over.
Oh, so its a good thing to have that protein pre-workout
That's what's misleading. It decreases circulating Test levels but they hypothesize that this is because of the greater muscle uptake of testosterone.
The study also suggests that by taking protein before exercise, the body favors glucose burning instead of fat burning so I think it would be logical to get some carbs with it so that the body uses carbs instead of converting precious protein to glucose.
so preworkout, it would be beneficial to have a protein shake and some rice or bread.
