🔥The best pre-workout🔥 by @dancudes - Follow @dancudes for more amazing posts like this 🔥 - What you have before a workout is certainly important. A good pre-workout can lead to massive performance gains which, in turn, lead to better strength and hypertrophy gains that you otherwise wouldn't have had. However, there is a massive difference between a pre-workout you buy at GNC and one you get from a grocery store. The whole thing with pre-workout is you want to feel "amped" and have the fuel necessary to perform. When you buy a pre-workout from GNC or another supplement store, you may get "amped", but you're loading your body with synthetic chemicals, garbage sweeteners and a ton of caffeine. Like, a ton of caffeine. Dumb amounts of caffeine. So instead of dumping that into your system, having a shot of espresso, coffee or green tea and a piece of fruit is not only a good pre-workout, but is also very nutritious and doesn't make you feel like you're going to die. Of course, that isn't as marketable and memeable as some of the really cool brands you see on the shelves of a supplement store, and I get that, but it will certainly benefit you more in the long-run. @topgymtips topgymtips Top Gym Tips

🚨IF YOU'RE A COLLEGE STUDENT LOOKING TO BUILD MUSCLE DM ME w/ THE MESSAGE: 1.6g) are usually still advised (Herda et al 2013, Morton et al 2017). Why? Studies have shown that a dose of ~3g leucine/meal is required to fully saturate the mTOR signalling pathway & trigger MPS (Norton & Wilson 2009). Therefore, as kcals are much higher when bulking than when cutting, trace proteins found in carbs and/or fats will start contributing sig. more to your daily protein total. PROBLEM, these sources are often low in leucine thus by having a low PROTEIN intake of 1.2g/kg along with a high CALORIE intake, you may struggle to stimulate MPS effectively at each meal & hence higher intakes may be more practical. Example: Studies show a dose of ~30–40g QUALITY protein/meal be required to supply the aforementioned 3g leucine (Phillips & Van Loon 2011). However, if bulking on high carbs/fats, when consuming a meal, you may already have 10+g protein coming from leucine deficient sources (trace proteins) thus having to limit the amount of your QUALITY protein source used  at that meal just to stay on track in achieving your DAILY total. Result? Potentially missing out on maximising the MPS response at that meal. NOT GOOD & hence higher intakes may be more practical.

When cutting: Studies have shown that requirements vary depending on energy availability ie. increase in a deficit & vice versa (Mero et al 2010). Therefore, when cutting, intakes of 1.2g are not advised as studies have shown that MINIMUM intakes of 2-3g/kg are required to preserve muscle mass (Helms et al 2013). Furthermore, requirements are higher for leaner individuals vs those with higher bf% (Elia 1999) thus the leaner you get during your cut, the higher your protein requirements will be." />
