I basically am wondering about the dynamics of glycogen resynthesis--if I have no carbs after a workout, will my muscles recover enough to do another workout within a week? For example, if I do back exercises on monday, and if i do strict keto, will they replenish enough to have a similar workout the following monday?
I am sorry it took me so long to complete the follow-up to last week's article about the latest "recovery science" - my real job took a toll Maybe it will comfort you to hear that there are five studies in today's research update - five studies that are not all directly related to exercise recovery and yet still practically relevant for your training and nutrition planning see "What's the practical implication?

Here are the topics of installment 2 of the recovery science research update January click here to read the previous one: Due to methodological differences, the study at hand does not really contradict the results of the post-set BFR study by Taylor et al learn more.
What the study at hand does do, however, is to make us question the use of "intermittent BFR", as you may want to call it, at a point in your workout where you haven't yet completed all the high-intensity sets. The subjects, amateur male middle- and long-distance runners, were randomly assigned into two experimental groups.
In addition to the "passive rest"-only group, there was a third group of subjects who rested only 5 minutes before the retest. As the authors' analysis of the data shows, the work capacity in the BFR group was significantly compromised in both groups, albeit to a different degree with a reduction of What's the practical implication?
In view of the potential negative impact of the reduced workload, it is possible, but by no means proven, that the adaptational response to the workout may suffer. If you want to train at maximal workloads and that appears to be one of the few things that are really affecting muscle gainslonger rest times seem to be beneficial.
Blood pressure mmHg of subjects in diff. This has important implications for both scientists and practitioners who want to standardize the pressure during blood flow restricted exercise. The relative difference between a wide and narrow cuff, on the other hand, is virtually identical in both positions.
Satellite cell activity is not impaired by a combination of resistance and HIIT training Pugh -- Satellite cells are "muscles to be", I've written about them and their role in both skeletal muscle growth and repair in various contextsbefore.
Turner, and Myra A. As previously hinted atsatellite cells will replace damaged myonuclei in your muscle and thus help maintain the structural integrity and function of your biceps, triceps, abs and all the other muscles in your body. Symbols above lines denote differences when a main effect was observed.
There's still the possibility of differences in long-term adaptation, but if you remember the last article in which I touched on the pros and cons of post-RT HIIT, you will also remember that its detrimental effects on protein synthesis and co.
The availability of water associated with glycogen during dehydration: The answer to the initially raised question is: In their paper, which is likewise available as open accessKing et al. Practically speaking this result may be of specific importance for "fat-fuelled" athletes whose glycogen stores are - especially at the beginning of their fat-laden journey to full ketosis often depleted and the water content of the musculature reduced for these athletes it's obviously good news.
Moreover, the results of the study at hand put a question mark behind the hypothesis that protected water could provide rehydration when hypohydrated, especially when water loss has occurred through sweat loss as it has been suggested by Maughan et al.
As a SuppVersity reader you will remember that plain milk can easily compete with special sports drinks like Gatorade, when it comes to its ability to restore muscular glycogen levels after a workout. With milk being a mix of both carbohydrates which are obviously important to max out the glycogen recovery and protein it was thus not unreasonable of Cogan et al.
Plasma amino acid concentrations during 4-h recovery.In fact, delaying the consumption of post-workout carbs for just two hours has been shown to slow the rate of muscle glycogen resynthesis by as much as 50% .
But as long as you’re getting enough carbohydrate in your diet, glycogen levels will return to normal after a day or two, regardless of when that carbohydrate is consumed [1, 2]. Because further increases, up to g/kg/h, do not lead to further rise in glycogen synthesis rate, the carbohydrate amount equal to g/kg/h can be considered optimum to maximize the resynthesis rate of muscle glycogen stores during post-exercise.

(). At rest, skeletal muscle accounts for % of peripheral glucose utilization, while during at an exercise intensity of % VO2 max, glucose utilization by skeletal muscle could account for as much as % of whole-body disposal5 and could account for even more at higher exercise intensities.6 So muscle glycogen is crucial for ATP resynthesis .
Protein Supplements and Muscle Glycogen Resynthesis After Prolonged Exercise Muscle glycogen is the predominant fuel catabolized for energy during heavy exercise g/lb) each hour (in minute intervals) during the first hours of recovery from prolonged exercise in order to maximize the rate of muscle glycogen resynthesis.
