Teddy, my dog, thanks for keeping me honest, and you know I’m good for busting your chops every once in a while:-) I really do recommend the NHE book. You probably are quite familiar with the concepts and such, but this, for me, was a whole new look into the hormonal aspect. I knew a little, but now I feel I know much more. We’ll see if theory translates into practice now.
On a sidenote, Teddy, I’m low-carbing it (i.e. 30g or less per day), and therefore am passing up the post-workout sugar. I’m going to go with 40g of pre-digested whey, 5g of glutamine and 5g BCAAs. What do you think about that (i.e. add/subtract anything)? I’m also taking in 5g of glutamine and BCAAs during training.
I want to look through Coach Alessi’s Iron Dog that gives specific recommendations. Only 200g of carbs for a refeed seems drastically low. I don’t see how this can provide any benefit. 200g per meal, perhaps, but not 200g total.
Arthur: Thanks for the link, buddy.
