Next week when i get back in the gym from my break i am going to be doing the BCAA/fasted-state protocol. I know stimulants like caffeine will be okay to take pre-workout. but what about amino acids such as tyrosine and ALCAR.
i'm noticed when i tried to take tyrosine in the ., but i feel as if i'm kicked out of the "Fasting state". so i now save it for the 8 hour window.
By taking in tyrosine and ALCAR pre-workout with the caffeine, then the BCAAs right before the workout. would that be pretty much altering the fasted state of the body?
I know it might not matter in the long-scheme of things, but i'm just curious lol. thanks
Anabolic androgenic steroids (AAS) were initially created for therapeutic purposes, and synthetic derivatives of the male hormone testosterone. Due its great anabolic effects, these drugs are being used on a large scale, for the improvement of sports performance. In this present study, we aim to show the history of it’ use, present their mechanisms of action, more particularly its use correlate with improved body composition, muscle mass, aerobic capacity and verify their possible side effects, analyzing their use therapeutic and indiscriminate, through direct scientific research with the sports. Sources were reviewed scientific the following search engines: PUBMED, LILACS and SCIELO. The results showed that in presence of a suitable AAS and diet can contribute to increases in body weight, particularly lean body mass and muscle strength gains achieved by high intensity exercise, these effects can be further potentiated, the use of supraphysiological doses, but in the aspect of aerobic power, there are not scientific evidence to support their improvement. Regarding side effects, the use of AAS, is related to several complications in the liver, cardiovascular system, reproductive system and psychological characteristics, always assigned by the non-therapeutic and abuse of AAS. Thus we conclude that the use of AAS, are directly linked to gains muscle mass, strength, as well several side effects, always assigned to abusive and indiscriminate doses, it is noteworthy that the scientific literature, still has a certain lack of studies, mainly randomized, controlled, with supraphysiological doses in human, so many effects are still unknown.
I was a ketogenic/no carb dieter for several years. I lost 102 lbs in 2004 (and was ‘too skinny’ from others pov’s) and kept it off by only eating no carb foods for 8 years. I fell off the wagon 18 months ago and have gained back 75 lbs. I got back on the wagon 27 days ago and am down lbs already. I’m walking a lot too. 3 miles, or 1 hour, every morning before breakfast to help burn the fat before breaking the fast. My biggest question that I just can not find an answer to, because every place I go to contradicts the other, is about muscle loss – Why do they call it muscle loss? it’s not the muscle tissue that’s going anywhere, it’s the glycogen and water in the muscles. So what’s the big deal? All I really want to know is if I’m doing myself any favors with the power walking twice/day, or am I actually hurt myself. Common sense tells me it’s good for my muscles to get them working hard like I am, after having been sedentary for more than a year, and it’s good for the fat burning process as well. Am I right? or am I wrong???
