I am a Amature MMA fighter, I train 5 days a week 4 gym sessions 5 hours MMA training
I was just after some information on Glycogen Replenishment ?
At the moment I drink a shake 30mins before a workout (gym and MMA) consisting of 30gram whey and 60-90 grams of dextrose powder. Also have the same shake after a workout
Breaky is a huge bowl of cereal and whey shake
lunch is a big plate of meat n veg (usually 500grams of meat)
dinner is a big plate of meat n veg (usually 500grams of meat)
2-5 of the above shakes a day
Is that enough to refill my glycogen each day ?
Should I eat more carbs around my work outs ?
Is dextose to fast acting for my needs ?
Is there anyway of knowing when my glycogen is full ? test etc ?
should I use slower digesting carbs for replenishment or fast ?
Thank you for your time and any input
