Why Bodybuilders Needs
Why Bodybuilders Needs Carbohydrate
bodybuilding training creates a demand in the bodybuilders body for glycogen
(carbohydrate) supplements as well as for amino acids. It is important
to have enough carbohydrates supplements in your system after your
bodybuilding training because
otherwise the body may start to use amino acids for energy instead. The
"window" for carbohydrate replenishment, the period during which the
body is in very high demand for this nutrient - is much shorter than it
is for protein. In fact, your best results occur when you are able to
get the necessary carbohydrates supplements into your body within 20 minutes of
finishing your bodybuilding training.
This need for
immediate glycogen replacement is why many bodybuilders use a
carbohydrate supplement after workouts as well as a protein supplement.
This is especially valuable if you follow up weight training with a
session of cardiovascular training. If you try to work on a treadmill,
stepper, or exercise bike too soon after your workout, and your body is
carbohydrate-deprived, you will find yourself lacking in energy and you
can be sure your body is metabolizing more amino acids to supply energy
than would otherwise be necessary.
