Train Harder With Carbs and Whey Protein

Train Harder With Carbs and Whey Protein
Muscle glycogen is critical for performance during endurance and high-intensity exercise. Whey protein contains essential amino acids that act as signaling chemicals that promote glucose uptake and glycogen synthesis. A Japanese study using rats showed that supplementing carbohydrates and whey protein before exercise slowed glycogen breakdown by activating enzymes important in muscle carbohydrate metabolism. Consuming carbs and whey protein approximately 30 minutes before exercise will help you train harder and recover faster. (Nutrition, 27: 833-837)
