Lets discuss protein! More specifically protein synthesis and how it relates to your physique goals.
I had originally written a whole bloody essay on the topic at hand but Instagram aren’t too fond of posting those, so lets break this down in a quick and informative way!
When we work out and apply progressive overload we tear down our muscles so they repair, bigger and stronger. This process induces protein synthesis.
Various studies have shown this process can last from 24 to 48 hours. So how can we use this to or advantage?
Most of us train with split routines hitting our body parts once a week. Chest on Monday, back on Tuesday etc etc and thats great, our protein synthesis levels are elevated and providing we’re taking in the right amount of protein we’re building muscle! However…
If we hit chest again after a day of recovery we’ll enter another phase of elevated protein synthesis which means we’re more likely to build more muscle! So how can we also apply this to our training?
Well I humbly believe, as of today!… that full body 3x5/5x5 training is the way to go! By training the body with heavy compound movements, applying progressive overload, taking in adequate protein and repeating the cycle you’re slap on muscle like theres no tomorrow!
So, there we have it! Yes, its taxing but what you put in you’ll get back ten fold so give it a go.
P.s I wanted to write the long essay so shall I start a blog with citations and such? Let me know!
