Muscle protein synthesis and optimal eating
After reading the interview with Steve and Casey Butt I have a question.
Casey told about muscle protein synthesis elevated for 48 hours post workout.
So...does it make sense to eat high protein after those 48 hours of MPS?
If you train a full body workout 3 days a week, I don't think it will be a problem. But like me I do 2 full body workouts a week (better 5 FB workouts in 2 weeks),
basically I train a workout, wait 2 - 3 days and repeat.
By the way, this MPS, is this local or is this for all the muscle's in the body.
I mean if I train chest, shoulders and triceps on monday, does my pushing muscles benefit from the elevated MPS of my wednesday pulling workout?
