Would depleted glycogen be how the HRX works? No more glycogen and the body turns to fat for energy?
I’m sure there are other means, but this seems like a legit question. For if this were the case, I think the depleted glycogen could compromise strength and recovery in the long run, and that is not bulk-friendly. Anyone know how much the Carbolin 19 could kick in to prevent this?
That isn’t how HRX works, or even could work. Glycogen is depleted by contracting your muscles outside of their normal tolerances (i.e. lifting weights), not taking a pill.
You’re oversimplifying what I wrote.
As I mentioned before, there may indeed be other factors at play, but if HOT-ROX contributes to keeping glycogen stores in a chronically depleted state, this may not be conducive to bulking, no?
You’re not giving much weight to what I wrote. HRX does not work this way. If anything it works the exact opposite, since one of it’s primary functions is to preserve lean tissue when cutting. The reason it’s not intended for bulking is it’s a thermogenic and for some has a negative effect on appetite.
HOT-ROX does not have to work by depleting glycogen for it to still chronically deplete glycogen, which still is not good for a bulk. That’s the point of what I’m saying.
For example, if swallowing broken glass is not conducive to a bulk because the eater’s purpose was to eat less, but instead what happens is that he ingests less food because of a bleeding stomach, the end result is the same: HE STILL EATS LESS.
That’s a pretty stupid argument. You would only be chronically depleting glycogen if you were cutting on purpose. If your intention was to bulk and you were chronically depleting glycogen then you don’t know how to bulk, with or without HRX. That in and of itself is not a reason to not use HRX while bulking. That is a reason to learn how to bulk.
If your point with this argument is to explain that you in fact do not know how to bulk, then you’ve succeeded. But if your point is to say that HRX by itself or in some direct way depletes gylcogen then you are wrong.
It may be a factor, just as much as about anything else, including stress, what’s on TV, what time you wake up, how hard you workout in the gym, etc. Don’t over-complicate things to try and find a reason why you failed. Chalk it up to a learning experience and move on.[/quote]
argumentum ad hominem
I think it’s pointless to argue with you. I trust that readers will be intelligent enough to distinguish which logic is flawed and sound, and glean whatever information they should find necessary for their endeavors. Again, thank you eengrms76 and everyone else for your help.
