ReDEFINING POST-WORKOUT SUPPLEMENTATION FOR THE LOW CARB ATHLETE
Putting on mass and getting shredded is a challenging task. In fact, most people often sacrifice and lose hard earned muscle in an effort to “cut up” for a contest or just to get lean. Building muscle and losing fat are opposing forces that are invariably at war with each other. From a molecular perspective, the pathways that are activated for fat loss often inhibit the pathways that are responsible for muscle growth. Athletes seeking to achieve very low body fat percentages – such as competitive bodybuilders – often have to resort to extreme methods such as very low carbohydrate dieting. While these diets are effective for fat loss, they can leave you in a catabolic state. When an athlete lowers and restricts calories to achieve weight loss, they must maximize the quality of every single nutrient they put into their body to maintain or improve muscle quality.
Scientists and athletes have known for some time now that exercise enhances muscle anabolism and makes the body more sensitive to anabolic stimuli. However, hard trained athletes on low carb or low calorie diets are extremely susceptible to post-workout catabolism. This is exactly what you want to avoid as it can result in a loss of muscle, strength and performance. We know that if you want to grow, you need nutrients as soon as possible after your workout session or your hard work will be for naught. But the dilemma for dieters has always been that post-workout formulas typically contain lots of carbohydrates, sugar and calories.
So what is an athlete to do if they want to get ripped without sacrificing their hard earned muscle? Fortunately, a new post-workout solution is here – introducing new Dark Matter Zero Carb Concentrate from MHP.
When compared with other post-workout recovery drinks, Dark Matter Zero Carb Concentrate is in a class of its own. Simply put, the new Dark Matter Zero Carb Concentrate is the muscle building solution for bodybuilders and dieters looking to build muscle and get ripped. The formula takes advantage of the most recent scientific discoveries in post-exercise nutrition for optimizing protein synthesis and the anabolic actions of insulin to enhance muscle growth and recovery without carbs!
