My brother is going in shortly to have a labrum repaired, and was asking my thoughts as to anything he could do, supplement wise, to slow, or possibly prevent excessive muscle loss post surgery.
Obviously the first things to my mind were BCAAs, Fish Oils, and Creatine, but I was curious what your thoughts would be in if this sort of regimen would have any real effect over the 6 months where he will be unable to really do much.
I believe he can do some leg work (plans on walking hills), but nothing jarring to his body. He’s pretty solid now, about 6’0, and very lean at a little over two bills. While he realizes this may be an opportunity to raise his leg training frequency, would hitting nothing but legs 3x a week have any effect on preventing muscle loss in the torso and limbs?
