First off, I love the site, and as you can see this is my first post.
I have always been into MMA, and the other day I was reading some article on bodybuilding.com where they interviewed this guy who trained MMA fighters. He trained a few names I recognized, but unfortunately I can’t remember the trainer’s name nor have I been able to find the article again.
(Sidenote: A unique identifier of the article is that the interviewee talks about a fighter who had surgery because a fungus was growing in his lungs. If any of you have read the article and recognize this, maybe you can remind me of the guy’s name)
In the Article, the trainer said that he had his guys ingest up to 10 grams of glutamine with each meal, or something like that. His reasoning was that it helps them recover from the strenuous training, especially before a fight. I have read the articles on this site that talk about the uselessness of glutamine supplementation, but those articles didn’t seem to address what, if anything, glutamine could do for recovery. So I was wondering if there was any merit to what this trainer was saying. Anybody have any ideas?
