You're welcome very much .........I never said anywhere in my post that you were agreeing with him....maybe you should be rereading.

I know what atrophy means, thank you very much. Do you think I was agreeing with him? Check your reading comprehension. Now as for hypertrophy and atrophy. The human body is in a constant state of flux. This is why we get older, and also why we need to train to maintain or gain muscle size. When we work a muscle (properly) then we are in a state of muscle growth. When muscle growth ends (whenever that is) then the muscle enters a state of atrophy. If this were not so, we would not need to continue to train once we have reached our desired size. As for the time limit why would you think that I think 96 hours is correct? Look at my posts againtuttut :mad:
I didn't put any words in your mouth. You clearly stated that if muscle growth ends at 96 hrs, then that is when atrophy begins.
BTW I did not say that atrophy begins as soon as hypertrophy ends. Please don't put words in my mouth. If you want to quote me, do so correctly. Thank you.
He was saying muscle growth ends at 96 hours. After that atrophy would begin.
Yes, I know the body is in a catabolic state after training. And no, sorry I have never read FLEX before.
No, this is also wrong. Your body is in a catabolic state after training. Where do you get your information from, FLEX? The body does NOT begin to repair muscle tissue until the food has been digested, broken down into nutrients and transported throughout the body...a process which can take several hours. The reason why we eat so soon after training is to limit the time the body spends in a catabolic state. Yes, another reason is that we are trying to get the nutrients to repair the muscle. But it certainly doesn't happen "as soon as you swallow thatpost-workout meal/shake. And if I remember correctly, liver glycogen gets refueled first and then muscle glycogen. So that post-workout meal would mainly go towards liver glycogen.
I apologize, what I meant was that as soon as you consume the post-workout shake, you body then breaks it down (obviously) before any muscle repair can begin. All I was trying to say was that I do not believe this takes 24 hrs. A post workout shake shouldn't take more than an hr or two to be broken down. (it's in liquid form, and whey & simple carbs do not take very long to be absorbed)And then, an anabolic state will be acheived. And, no, that post-workout shake will not just refuel liver glycogen.
