The body uses two different energy systems to fuel the body’s activity or exercise. Anaerobic - First the body uses the anaerobic system which has energy ready to go as soon as you start to use your muscles. Anaerobic means without oxygen. Aerobic - The second energy system, the aerobic system, kicks in when your short term, initial energy from the ...
Aerobic means you're burning fatty acids as your primary fuel source, along side oxygen and small amounts of ATP in the muscle's. Anaerobic means you're burning ATP, and Oxygen as your primary fuel source. The latter being limited but more explosive in muscle contractions than the former.
To answer your question specifically: it doesn't matter. Studies show that the average amount of protein taken in over a given period of time(days, weeks)is what matters far more than getting your whey in before or after. The body does not really become magically more efficient at using protein after a workout. As long as you're hitting your daily intake ...
If I were you, I would keep a food journal. It's free and you can record every aspect of your nutritional intake including protein, carbs, fats, calories etc. All that is required is that you read food labels and/or buy a calorie counter. Knowing what you're currently consuming will allow you to plan much better than guessing.
Not all sugars are the same. Glucose is a monosaccharide, and is easily utilized by nearly all cells of the body for energy. Fructose, also a monosaccharide, is not: it is almost exclusively metabolized by the liver. Excess consumption of fructose causes a variety of problems that would not occur with glucose consumption. Sucrose ("table sugar" or "cane ...
600-700 grams of weight loss isn't anything to be concerned about; you can easily make it up after the workout. You could go with glucose, though you don't need to replace calories for that short of a workout. If you want to replenish more water, I'd recommend something with electrolytes in it. That will allow you to absorb the water more quickly.
As a general rule, avoid sugar (glucose) at all times. Sugar is a bad thing for your health. There are better sources of carbohydrates. If your goal is to cut (loose fat) then the answer is NO. If you are an athlete and your goal is to improve muscle mass or endurance then sugar (and other simple cabs) have some place in your diet. But this last doses not ...
Sites like myfitnesspal.com (which I use) have exercise logs which you can use to track amount of calories burned. Maybe you should check one of those out. Edit: As mentioned in @rrirower answer, food logging is equally important. Sites like www.noom.com or myfitnesspal.com have both food and exercise logging.
My after-weigh-in package included a small grilled chicken breast and a well-cooked sweet potato with butter, eaten slowly. That worked pretty great. I also drank plenty of water, though juices would also be reasonable. Dairy would be ill-advised, as would any fried foods or other foods that give you difficulty with digestion.
You are likely to be dehydrated glycogen depleted in hyperketonemia Short term solution? Drink water. Eat sugar and other carbohydrates that are rapidly metabolized. Caffeine. Do not eat protein or fat--it won't help. If you'll be exerting yourself for several hours, you should keep eating small amounts throughout that time period. For several days ...
Start with simple excercises and learn how to execute those well and learn to feel muscles. I don't think you need to know muscle groups because there are basic excerscises for arms/core/legs which are easy, don't overthink it. It goes along with feeling the muscles, you can read all the internet but unless you spend a lot of time doing actuall work you know ...
it is important to wear this while exercising. you never know what movement will cause a problem."Langot" has been used by wrestlers for as long as the sport has been on earth. If you are over weight (even a little) and using your own body weight for training and doing movements like squats, push ups and/or other leg movements, or anything that puts pressure ...
