In this article, we will discuss two themes that surround the thought of two days of strength, strength and fitness athletes …
Intermittent fasting and glycogen depletion.
Next, we will briefly describe each one, discuss some of the potential benefits (and limitations), and my conclusion of a thorough study why some athletes can (and against) ……
What is intermittent fasting?
Intermittent fasting is a food habit that prevents you from eating for a long time (some studies show benefits) and then the feeding time. There are several dietary strategies and a variety of intermittent fasting format, discusses some of the most popular foods in this intermittent fasting article.
* I mean it’s that I’m trying to continue acting as impartial as I can throughout this piece, and against both the proposed conclusions, and it will provide some weighty food to think about before plunging in (or, if I disagree ) There is intermittent fasting and strength training.
Potential benefits of intermittent fasting
Some studies have shown that intermittent fasting can bring benefits to athletes (more on this later). Keep in mind that the previous article will delve into the following advantages and will be associated with the results of clinical research. This article is by no means judging the efficacy of intermittent fasting (or lack of it), but simply reiterating some of the contents of the studies they have found, and if they are curious / interested in how to use it for energy, strength and Fitness athletes Learn more about intermittent fasting.
Increase in human growth hormone (HGH): the human growth hormone was multiplied by five during fasting. * In order to play the role of the devil’s supporters here, HGH has also proven to increase through hard and hard training. This study only compared the secretions of HGH in untrained conditions.
Improvement of cell repair: one study found that prolonged fasting changed stem cells from latency to self-healing and repair. * Please note that the research article used here has been tested in mice and, therefore, may require further study of humans and recovery of training cells) [*]
Reduce inflammation: some studies have shown that fasting can reduce oxidative stress and prevent / systemic inflammation.
Improve cognitive health: in addition to possibly fighting inflammation, fasting can also increase the level of neurotrophic factors derived from the brain. Be sure to read more about the intermittent fasting benefits mentioned above and the research here.
What is glycogen depletion?
In the previous article, we discussed the particulars of glycogen, muscle growth and the benefits of its performance, as well as glycogen depletion of signs and symptoms. In summary, glycogen depletion is a condition in which skeletal muscle glycogen storage due to reduced availability of no higher intensity movement. This usually occurs during prolonged periods of intense training and / or chronic malnutrition (lack of adequate carbohydrate and / or calorie expenditure).
How does intermittent fasting affect glycogen depletion?
When we look at intermittent fasting and glycogen depletion, the most important aspect that we have to consider is the total ability of a person to provide enough calories and carbohydrates within 24 hours, to allow muscle growth and reaction deformation. If someone eats during the day (calories are not enough), he / she will not be able to train with greater intensity and / or increase muscle mass.
That is, most athletes will have intermittent quick feedback shortening a window that will give them the daily needs of calories and whole (macro) in a smaller window (usually most of us during the fastest sleep 6-8 hours, letting us eat for 16-18 hours). However, those who are fasting may shorten the feeding window (for example, the 16/8 method has only 8 hours of fasting window). For athletes who are intermittent fasting, enough to meet calorie consumption needs is crucial, as they must adapt to a day of eating in a short period of time. If you do not consume enough calories that your body needs (if you are fasting or not fasting), muscle mass, strength and performance will be hindered.Effect of insulin sensitivity on glycogen supplementation Intermittent fasting has the ability to increase the insulin sensitivity of
