Our Choice for the Article of the Week
Probably the most debated topic among nutrition involves nutrient timing and peri-workout nutrition. For most of us, we were taken under the wing of experienced gym rats who passed on the ‘bro knowledge’ that was passed on to them. The others were thrown to the wolves (AKA the internet) and had to try to learn how to fend for themselves, some finding good knowledge others finding complete nonsense. In this article these 3 super smart individuals break down the research on nutrient timing, why we thought it was important, why there is NOT an extreme urgency for a post workout meal and some rules to follow.
