On the bulletin board at the gym: The key to optimizing your workout is to provide the energy and building materials muscles need when they need them most. It all begins immediately after your workout. Timing is everything. Fact: If you dont replace the glycogen (stored sugars) that you burned during your workout within minutes of your last rep, your bodys metabolism begins to quickly slow down, cannobilizing its own muscles tissue for energy. This is bad. Over time you will need to work out harder and harder to achieve the same results becauseyou will have less and less muscle to maintain healthy metabolism.
