ok, I have recently read some very interesting info in a bacck issue of the natural press about post training drinks (written with some top references). One of the main poionts raised was if the majority of your proteiin source is taken immedetatly after your work out with youur carbs, the body as its in its high catoblism state and has very low blood sugar levels will use all the carbs as planed to resynesise muscle glucose stores and most of the protein will be transported to the liver and converted into glygogen! so the experts qoted suggest the best thing to do is consume 70-100g of simple carbs with 15g of hydrozened whey. This would mean the body would get a high dose of carbs with a protein source which digests and enters the blood stream so quickly it cant be transported to the liver to be oxidised. this also (carbs/protein mix) increases glygoen stored by 40% while promting a positive nitrogen balance.
So in one way you are consuming less protein straight after training but the muscles will receive more. 30 mins after that, a protein shake should be consumed and then the body will be able to used the amino acids to resynsise muscle protein with out any being wasted. If that drink was whey, eat a meal 1 hour later but if it was as slow digesting proteiin like casin the meal can be consumed up to 2-3 hours latter as the anti-catoblic effests last that mmuch longer.
Any ideas on this, it does to me make a lot of sense as the body after traing wants to primarly replenish the nutritent its most run out of. Does any one think this post training opproach is worth ago?
